Soundarya Rajinikanth, Rajinikanth's younger daughter, began her career in films as a graphic designer. Her first stint with the tinsel town happened as a producer in Venkat Prabhu 2010 directorial venture, Goa.
Although her directorial debut was supposed to be Sultan: The Warrior, the Rajinikanth-starrer 3D animated feature was dropped despite heavy pre-production promotion.
Not one to give up, Soudarya's directorial debut happened with Kochadaiiyaan.
Despite extensive post-production work using the motion-capture technology, Kochadaiiyaan could not live up to expectations as it lacked that trademark style and panache of other Rajini films.
In a recent interview to The Hindu
, Soundarya reveled in her second directorial venture,"Iâ€™ve already started working on my next script. Iâ€™m stepping away from animation, quite consciously. My upcoming film will be a romantic comedy and Iâ€™m working closely with my brother-in-law (actor Dhanush} on the script. Hopefully, it will all come together soon".
However , Dhanush has more than 7 movies in his kitty. It is not clear therefore if his first priority would be writing.
