Chennai: Daughter of veteran superstar Rajinikanth, Soundarya R Ashwin and Bollywood hottie Deepika Padukone have developed a great bond it seems.

The two pretty women have teamed up for Rajini’s next ‘Koachadaiyaan’. The film is being directed by Soundarya while Deepika is the female lead.

The dimpled girlie who will be seen romancing someone indeed double her age addresses the legendary actor as ‘Appa’ (Father)off screen.

This came to light when Deepika took to Twitter to thank Soundarya for making her feel comfortable on the sets of the flick which happens to be Rajini’s first full fledged film post recovery from renal failure last year.

Soundarya had tweeted, “Hey guys.back in Chennai after an awesome 2nd schedule in kerala..finished some good work.was gr8 working with deepika?she is such a darling(sic),”, to which Deepika responded, “@sound_a_rajini thank u for making me feel so comfortable & for being such a wonderful director!lots of love to amma and appa & see you soon(sic).”

The debutant director tweeted back writing, “@deepikapadukone :):) It was a pleasure directing you! Will see you soon for sure Lots of love from Appa amma and the whole unit!!! Big hug!(sic).”
