Rajinikanth’s daughter Soundarya files for divorce

In yet another shocking news of split, Rajinikanth’s younger daughter Soundarya and husband Ashwin Ramkumar have filed for divorce at the family court, a leading daily reported citing legal sources.

The couple have been facing trouble in their marital lives for a few years now. After trying their best to resolve the differences between them, they have ultimately decided to go separate ways.

Soundarya, a graphic designer and filmmaker herself, tied the knot with Ashwin, an industrialist in Chennai in 2010. They knew each other for four years before getting married. The couple has a son Ved, who turned one a few months ago.

The report in the daily further stated that after Rajinikanth returned from the US after a medical treatment, he visited his daughter and stayed with her for a few days. During that time the superstar had tried to pacify Soundarya to for a compromise, but she had already made up her mind to part ways with Ashwin.

Reportedly, when Ashwin was asked about this issue, he chose not to comment.

Soundarya was instrumental in bringing Pa Ranjith to direct Rajinikanth in the blockbuster ‘Kabali’. She made her film debut as director with India’s first photorealistic motion capture film ‘Kochadaiiyaan’ starring her father Rajinikanth and Deepika Padukone. And now, she is ready with the script for next film. It’s supposed to be a contemporary rom-com film. The cast and crew for the film are yet to be finalised.
