Dhanush and Aishwaryaa Rajinikanth announce separation
Actor Dhanush and wife Aishwaryaa have announced their separation after 18 years of marital life. The duo made the announcement late on Tuesday night through their social media handles.
Dhanush, 38, and Aishwaryaa, 40, daughter of superstar Rajinikanth, got married in 2004. The couple has two sons, Yatra and Linga, who were born in 2006 and 2010, respectively.
Both Dhanush and Aishwaryaa shared similarly worded statements to announce their separation. Dhanush’s note reads,
Eighteen years of togetherness as friends, couple, as parents and well-wishers to each other. The journey has been of growth, understanding, adjusting and adapting. Today we stand at a place where our paths separate. Aishwaryaa and I have decided to part ways as a couple and take time to understand us as individuals for the better.
While Dhanush is a busy actor with multiple projects lined up in various languages, Aishwaryaa is into social work and fitness programmes. She has also directed two films in Tamil romantic. Her debut feature ‘3’ had Dhanush and Shruti Haasan as the leads. Her second film ‘Vai Raja Vai’ is a black comedy with Gautham Karthik as the main lead.
