Yesterday, Actor Dhanush announced that he and his wife Aishwaryaa have decided to separate after 18 years of marriage.
Dhanush took some time from his busy schedule and informed his fans on Twitter and wrote, “18 years of togetherness as friends, couple as parents and well-wishes for each other.”
The journey has been about 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.”
“Please do Respect our decision and give us the needed privacy to deal with this. Om Namashivaaya!”
Well, Aishwaryaa too, but the same statement on Instagram with little bit changes along with the caption: “No caption needed… only your understanding and your love are necessary!” Afterward, she signed off the post as Aishwaryaa Rajinikanth.
After six months of an affair, they got married on 18th November 2004. The couples have two sons – Yatra and Linga – who were born in 2006 and 2010.
Both of them belong to well-established families in the Tamil film industry. While Aishwaryaa is the elder daughter of megastar Rajinikanth, Dhanush is the son of producer Kasthuri Raja. They both got married when Dhanush was only 21 and Aishwarya was 23.
Dhanush was last seen in Atrangi Re co-starring Sara Ali Khan and Akshay Kumar. He is a four-time National Award winner, last bagging the prestigious honor for his 2019 film Asuran.
