Soundarya Rajinikanth is gearing up for the release of her action-packed directorial venture “VIP 2” and she says she is happy that a female director was chosen for the commercial film.
“I sincerely wish the mindset that women filmmakers only direct women-oriented scripts should go away. ‘VIP 2’ is a commercial movie and I’m happy to have helmed the project as a female director,” Soundarya told.
he 32-year-old filmmaker, who made her directorial debut with Rajinikanth and Deepika Padukone’s motion-capture film ‘Kochadaiyaan’, says she wanted to break away from animation and do a feature movie as her second project.
“Kochadaiyaan was a photo-realistic performance-capture film. It was new to the Indian audiences, who still have the mindset that animation is cartoons. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working in both the mediums equally.”
On her next project, she says, “I’m not sure about my next project, but it will not be an animation film. It will again be a feature movie.”
