- 'This script didn't demand anything like that,' said Soundarya
- 'So we didn't even think of something like that,' she added
- 'Whatever the script demands, the director has to do that,' she said
Soundarya made her debut as a director with 2014's Kochadaiiyaan, which cast Rajinikanth and Deepika Padukone in lead roles. When asked about her experience of working with her superstar father for her debut venture, she told PTI: "Everyone who comes in the film industry wants to direct a film with my father. So, I was blessed to do that. I think there is comfort level when you work with family."
Meanwhile, of Rajinikanth considering the idea of joining politics, the 32-year-old filmmaker told NDTV: "Dad has (always) done whatever is right at the right time. As a family, we will support and back him on whatever decision he takes."
