Overwhelmed by the presence of the Thalaivar himself, Dhanush, who is also Rajinikanth’s son-in-law, said he could not have asked for more. “What more can i ask ?? #thanksthalaiva (sic) with all your blessings #vip2 kick starts from today. #raghuvaranisback.”

Soundarya made her directional debut in 2014 with India’s first motion capture film Kochadaiiyaan, starring Rajinikanth in the lead.
The bilingual film will be shot in Tamil and Telugu and will be co-produced by Kalaippuli S Thanu’s V Creations along with Dhanush’s Wunderbar Films.
The 2014 blockbuster film, Velaiyilla Pattathari, was the first major hit for Wunderbar Films. It revolves around an unemployed engineering graduate, Raghuvaran, and how he overcomes all the challenges to become successful.
