Superstar Rajinikanth celebrated his 38th wedding anniversary yesterday with wife Latha. The couple got married on February 26, 1981, in a South Indian wedding ceremony in Tirupati. Their younger daughter, Soundarya Rajinikanth took to Twitter to wish the superstar couple on their special day. The newly married filmmaker posted a beautiful photo of her parents exchanging the wedding garlands.

Soundarya shared a vintage photo of the couple and wrote, “The couple that sets the benchmark for #TheUltimateCoupleGoals love u mummy and daddy !!! #HappyAnniversary.” (sic)
Rajinikanth and Latha went to the same college and it was the superstar himself who proposed to her woman. It so happened that the actor fell in love with Latha at the very first sight and proposed to her for marriage when she once came to take her interview. However, Mrs Rajinikanth didn’t say yes immediately and requested for her parents’ approval. Later, the two got married after being in a courtship for a while.
Rajinikanth was last seen in Tamil film Petta which released to a positive response. His next is with director AR Murugadoss, produced by Lyca Productions.
Meanwhile, Soundarya just got hitched to businessman Vishagan Vanangamudi in Chennai on February 11. The wedding was a lavish affair with many prominent names from the Tamil film industry blessing the couple, along with the members of the families and close friends. Soundarya’s wedding attire was designed by Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla. She completed her look with a diamond necklace, a kamar bandh, and diamond bangles.
The filmmaker was earlier married to businessman Ashwin. After their wedding in 2010, the duo got separated. Soundarya announced in the year 2016 that she and Ashwin had filed for divorce after four years of their marriage by mutual consent due to irreconcilable differences. It was in July 2017 that the couple finally got divorced.
