Rajinikanth's daughter Soundarya and her husband Ashwin Ramkumar are calling it quits after six years.
Superstar Rajinikanth’s family is going through a rough patch as the 2.0 actor’s younger daughter Soundarya filed for divorce from her husband Ashwin Ramkumar in Chennai after six years of marriage. The couple reportedly came to a mutual agreement to part ways after having a difference of opinion. Ashwin and Soundarya have a one-year-old son Ved, but it is not known so far whether the parents will share joint custody of their child. According to a report in PTI, Soundarya confirmed the rumours regarding about her marriage earlier this year in September.
She wrote on Twitter, “News about my marriage is true. We have been separated for over a year and divorce talks are on. I request all to respect my family’s privacy.” Unlike her elder sister Aishwarya Dhanush who has appeared in a number of films, Soundarya has kept to the production side of filmmaking. She has worked in a number of Tamil films as a graphic designer and even directed the 2014 historical film Kochadaiiyaan, starring Rajinikanth and Deepika Padukone. She is the founder of Ocher Picture Productions and produced the 2010 comedy Goa. Her next project Velai Illa Pattathari 2 will see her directing her brother-in-law Dhanush in the sequel to the 2014 blockbuster.
