The couple reportedly were living separately for the last several months.
Superstar Rajnikanth’s daughter Soundarya is now legally separated from her husband R Ashwin, ending their seven year’s martial relationship on mutual consent.
The divorce petition was filed by Soundarya last year on grounds of unrepentant reasons and as of now, there is no confirmation on who will be the custodian of the two-year-old son.
Soundarya had earlier reacted to the news about her divorce through her official social media handles, calling it a personal affair and requesting the media and public to respect her privacy on the subject.
The couple reportedly were living separately for the last several months and failed to patch up the relationship.
Talking about her marriage to the media three years ago Soundarya said that “Dhanush and my dad’s lifestyle is similar. My sister’s transition post marriage was thus easier. For me, even after three years, I am still adjusting as it is a different environment.”
The divorce proves that the couple failed to see eye-to-eye on many subjects, which has culminated in the separation of the celebrity-daughter with her husband.
There are also unconfirmed reports that the name ‘Soundarya Rajanikanth’ was an issue of contention between the couple and it seems like the celebrity daughter wanted to retain her father’s name forever despite her husband’s objection.
Meanwhile, on the film front, Soundarya is in full swing with her directorial venture Velaiila Pattadhari 2 aka VIP2 starring Dhanush, Amala Paul and Bollywood diva Kajol in the lead. The movie will be a sequel to the 2014 super hit film by the same name. The film has already garnered public and media attention with the appearance of Kajol in the antagonist role for the first time ever.
Kajol is making a comeback to the Tamil industry after 20 years. She was last seen in the 1997 movie Minsara Kanavu in which she played opposite to Prabhu Deva and Aravind Samy
