Dhanush and Aishwarya Rajnikanth announced their split on social media!
Dhanush, a Tamil actor and singer, announced his divorce with Aishwaryaa Rajnikanth on social media on January 17. He wrote, “After 18 years of marriage, I’ve decided to divorce.”
18 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. Please do respect our decision and give us the needed privacy to deal with this.
However, it appears that this is really a temporary separation and not a divorce. Kasthuri Raja, Dhanush’s father and director, denied that the couple will split. He referred to their split as a ‘family squabble.’ During an interview with a local newspaper, he stated that they had split due to the regular disagreements that occur between a married pair.
Dhanush and Aishwaryaa are not in Chennai at present. Both are in Hyderabad. I spoke to both of them over the phone and gave them some advice.
Dhanush and Aishwarya were married on November 18, 2004. They have two boys, Yatra and Linga, who were born in 2006 and 2010, respectively. Aishwarya Rai is Rajnikanth’s elder daughter.
