A welcome trend that has emerged in Tamil cinema is that the f women filmmakers have started gaining acceptance from all quarters. Out of the female directors who have given recent hit and/or critically acclaimed films have either been associated with the industry in some other profession or closely associated with someone who has already achieved in the industry.
Actress Lakshmi Ramakrishnan, Aishwarya Dhanush, Soundarya Ashwin, Kiruthiga Udhanidhi are those fall under these category.
, Rajini Nataraj, the wife of actor Vishnu Vishal and also designed costumes for a few films, will be directing her maiden flick soon. Perhaps, taking a cue from r Aishwarya who is also the elder daughter of Superstar Rajinikanth, Rajini will be making her first directorial with her husband in the lead role. Vishnu Vishal will be taking up this project after finishing his current commitments.
Rajini has worked as an assistant to Kirtuhiga Udhanidhi in the latter’s maiden directorial ‘Vanakkam Chennai’ apart from being the costume designer for Priya Anand, the lead lady of the film. She has also assisted Seenu Ramasami in ‘Neerparavai’ and the upcoming ‘Idam Porul Eval’, both having her husband in lead role.
Rajini has reportedly has written two scripts and will be taking up the one that she claims to be tailor made for her husband.
