"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.
