Soundarya Rajinikanth Ashwin (born 20 September 1984 as Shaku Bai Rao Gaekwad) is a film graphic designer, producer and director who primarily works in the Tamil film industry. She is the founder and owner of Ocher Picture Productions. Soundarya began her career in films as a graphic designer. For those starring her father Rajinikanth, she designed the title sequences. She became a noted film producer through Goa (2010). She will be making her debut as a director in the film Kochadaiyaan.
Soundarya is also the founder and chief executive of Ocher Picture Productions. In 2007, Ocher Studios signed an agreement with Warner Bros. Entertainment to partner up in producing and distributing Tamil films. Her directorial debut was supposed to be Sultan: The Warrior, a 3D animated film featuring her father Rajinikanth. The film however failed to take off. She is currently working as director on Kochadaiiyaan, an upcoming motion capture film starring Rajinikanth. Through Kochadaiiyaan, Soundarya earned the distinction of becoming the first woman to direct her father in a feature film.
