We have been separated for over a year and divorce talks are on. I request all to respect my family’s privacy,” the Kochadaiiyaan director had tweeted in September. Soundarya is a graphic designer and filmmaker.
Earlier, Soundarya spoke about father Rajinikanth. “He is a very simple human being. He never forgot where he came from. As his children, my sister Aishwarya and I learnt this from him — to never forget our roots. With our dad, there are no two faces. What you see is what he is. Whether it’s a fan or a producer, he treats them all the same. He has been down to earth all his life. He will never change. We, as his children, try to emulate that trait of our dad, ” Soundarya told IANS.
