Soundarya Rajinikanth, who is gearing up for her next film, seems to be ready to direct a star kid. Well, she is reportedly planning to collaborate with none other than Pranav, the son of Malayalam superstar Mohanlal.

Rumours are rife that Pranav is the strong contender to play the lead role in Soundarya Rajinikanth's next film, which will be the debut flick of Mohanlal's son in Tamil. Makers of the upcoming movie are expected to open up on the issue in the days to come.

Pranav started his career as a child-artiste in Malayalam film Thampi Kannanthanam. Now, he is getting ready to make his acting debut in Malayalam with forthcoming Jeethu Joseph's film, which will be bankrolled by Anthony Perumbavoor.

On the other side, Soundarya Rajinikanth made her directorial debut with India's first photorealistic motion capture film, Kochadaiiyaan. The historical epic fiction had several big names, including Deepika Padukone, in the cast. Unfortunately, the film failed to make it big at the box office.

Now, the director, who is now in the process of getting legally separated from her husband Ashwin, is ready to make a comeback with the latest flick, which will be bankrolled by leading producer Kalaippuli S Thanu under his home banner of V Creations.
