Soundarya tied the knot with Ashwin Ramkumar, an industrialist, on 3 September, 2010 at Rani Meyyammai Hall in Chennai. The couple had been dating for four years. 

After getting married, Soundarya got busy with her ambitious "Kochadaiiyaan", a live-action animated movie. The movie starred her father Rajinikanth and Bollywood diva Deepika Padukone. However, the movie failed to keep the cash registers ringing at the box office.

Rajinkanth's Next Movie
Meanwhile, Rajinikanth is getting ready to kick-start Pa Ranjith's movie. it is said to be action movie similar to the director's earlier film "Madras". The superstar will be moving to Shankar's film once he completes this film.

Rajini's last two films ("Kochadaiiyaan" and KS Ravikumar's "Lingaa") failed to impress the audience. Hence, there are huge expectations from his forthcoming Tamil movies.
