Earlier this month, news emerged that producer and director Soundarya Rajinikanth, daughter of actor Rajinikanth and Latha, is all set to marry actor and businessman Vishagan Vanangamudi. While an official confirmation is still awaited, sources close to the family have confirmed the news to TNM.

On Saturday, Latha Rajinikanth, Soundarya’s mother, in a letter to Teynampet police station has requested for police protection at their residence in Poes Garden on February 10 and February 12.

However, an official from the station told TNM that while the letter does not mention the reason for the request, it specifies that several guests are expected on those dates.

“It is an upper-class residential area and so several guests in cars are expected to arrive on the said dates. In her letter, she has requested for bandobast on February 10 and 12 to make sure that there are no traffic problems in the area,” said the officer from the Teynampet station.

While more details are yet to be revealed, reports have emerged that Soundarya’s pre and post wedding events are set to take place on the said dates at Rajinikanth’s Poes Garden residence.

Soundarya Rajinikanth was previously married to industrialist Ashwin Ramkumar. The filmmaker filed for divorce at a family court in Chennai in December 2016, citing irreconcilable differences. At the time, she requested the media and members of the public to respect the privacy of the family. The couple together has a son named Ved Krishna.

Vishagan Vanangamudi made his acting debut in 2018 with Vanjagar Ulagam.

It was recently announced that Soundarya Rajinikanth has partnered with video streaming service MX Player to produce an original web series on the Tamil epic, Ponniyin Selvan.

In a statement to the press, Soundarya Rajinikanth said, “From the day I read this amazing novel, I was determined to narrate this impeccable story in the visual medium and have explored every single avenue that offered the possibility to realise this vision."
