Soundarya, who is the younger daughter of Rajinikanth and Latha, took to Twitter to express her excitement.
“Thank you all for the love and wishes!!! The whole family is excited and I feel very blessed. Baby on the way. Motherhood.” Soundarya, thirty, tweeted.
Soundarya is four months pregnant and has been been married to Ashwin for over four years now.
Her debut film as a director was Kochadaiiyaan in 2013, which featured her father in the lead role, apart from actors Deepika Padukone and Jackie Shroff.
At the audio launch of Kochadaiiyaan, Rajinikanth had stated, “After this film, Soundarya will get new offers, but I expect her to have two children and then take up direction.”
He went on to add, “My humble opinion is that women in the family should spend more time with the children. Only then, they will grow into good citizens. I would advise my daughters to take care of their kids till they are ten to twelve years old. They can then resume their careers.”
In fact, Soundarya had told presspersons later that she intended to follow her dad’s suggestion. “My first delivery will be Kochadaiiyaan. After that, as per my father’s advice, I should start a family,” she had said.
Founder and owner of Ocher Picture Productions, Soundarya began her career in films as a graphic designer.
