Soundarya Rajinikanth officially divorced from husband Ashwin

It’s an official end of Soundarya Rajinikanth and Ashwin Ramkumar’s marriage. The estranged couple finally granted divorce by court. Soundarya and Ashwin went separate ways in September and filed for divorce in December on mutual consent.

A Chennai-based family court finalised the divorce proceedings. The couple has been living separately for seven months and failed to reconcile.

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. Who will get the custody of their son is still not known.

The report in the daily further stated that in 2016 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 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.

The trouble in their married life first came into forefront when in public Soundarya identified herself as ‘Soundarya Rajinikanth’. When asked she stated that she is proud to call herself Soundarya Rajinikanth.

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. Soundarya Rajinikanth is now gearing up for the release of her next directorial venture 'VIP 2'. The film stars Dhanush and Bollywood actress Kajol.
