"I always wanted to be a creative person... My parents have encouraged us to do whatever we wanted to do as an individual. It was a decision I made. I wanted to be behind the camera and my parents are happy about it, she said about herself and her sister Aishwarya, who is also a filmmaker."
Mumbai, April 20 IANS) She ventured on the filmmaking journey with Sultan, but it got shelved. Unfazed, Soundarya Rajinikanth says that it didn't affect her animation dream and she fulfilled it with Kochadaiiyaan.

Starring her superstar father Rajinikanth, Kochadaiiyaan is Soundarya's directorial debut, which is set to deliver ground breaking technology -- the Rs.125-crore project is said to be the country's first motion capture photo-realistic 3D animated movie.

I started 'Sultan' six years ago when animation was not as advanced as it is today. For various reasons, 'Sultan' got shelved, but my animation dream did not, so I continued dreaming. And today here I am with 'Kochadaiiyaan'.

This is my first film and I hope to continue making films. Animation is my passion but at the end of the day I am a creative person, but yes, I will also do a live action film, she added.

Soundarya always wanted to be a creative person.

I always wanted to be a creative person... My parents have encouraged us to do whatever we wanted to do as an individual. It was a decision I made. I wanted to be behind the camera and my parents are happy about it, she said about herself and her sister Aishwarya, who is also a filmmaker.

Kochadaiiyaan, featuring Deepika Padukone as the female lead opposite Rajinikanth, will hit the screens May 9.
