Producer and filmmaker Soundarya Rajinikanth is over the moon, as she is all set to exchange marital vows with actor and businessman Vishagan Vanangamudi tomorrow. The couple will tie the knot at The Leela Palace in Chennai between 9 and 10.30am, followed by a reception at 11am.
The “blessed and grateful” Soundarya took to Twitter to share adorable pictures with the “three most important men in (her) life” – father Rajinikanth, son Ved Krishna, and husband-to-be Vishagan Vanangamudi. The pictures were taken at Soundarya and Vishagan’s wedding festivities.
On Friday, a pre-wedding reception was held at the Raghavendra Kalyana Mandapam in Chennai. Pictures and videos of the close-knit function, which was attended only by close friends and family members of the couple, have been going viral on the internet.
While Soundarya looked stunning in a blue and gold silk saree, her fiancé Vishagan was seen wearing an off-white shirt and veshti. Rajinikanth and his wife Latha were seen welcoming the guests. Soundarya’s elder sister Aishwarya and her husband Dhanush were also a part of the celebrations.
Earlier this month, Latha Rajinikanth requested police protection at their Poes Garden residence on February 10 and 12, sparking speculation that Soundarya was gearing up for her wedding with Vishagan.
A few days later, Soundarya announced the happy news on Twitter by revealing that she was in ‘bride mode’. Sharing a picture of herself dressed in a royal blue and orange silk saree and heavy jewelry, she added a series of hashtags such as #OneWeekToGo, #BrideMode, #Blessed, #VedVishaganSoundarya and #Family.
Soundarya was previously married to businessman Ashwin Ramkumar. However, they filed for divorce in December 2016, citing irreconcilable differences. Vishagan, who made his big screen debut last year with Vanjagar Ulagam, is also a divorcee. He was earlier married to magazine editor Kanikha Kumaran.
