Rajnikanth’s awkward scenes with Deepika

Superstar Rajnikanth may have romanced many heroines onscreen with ease, but the film-maker revealed he had faced awkward moments shooting for his daughter Soundarya Ashwin’s directorial debut, Kochadaiiyaan.

“He felt very awkward during the romantic scenes with Deepika Padukone (the film’s heroine) with me saying ‘action’ and ‘cut,’” Ashwin said.

While Rajnikanth as “appa” (father) was very protective, “he was very professional” as an actor and this was evident while making the movie, she said.

The superstar supported her like most new directors would. Asked if she would direct her father again, she said: “I feel blessed and grateful to direct him. If God is kind enough, I shall direct another film with him.” –
