South superstar Dhanush left his fans in shock when he announced his separation from his wife Aishwaryaa. The couple have been married for 18 years and are parents to two sons. The news left fans of the Asuran star heartbroken. Many are still trying to come to terms with the shocking announcement.
Dhanush and Aishwaryaa have been one of the most private couples. But the love and respect they shared for each other were quite evident. In an old interview, the actor had once praised his wife and revealed what attracted him to her.
In a throwback interview with TOI, when Dhanush was asked if the fact that Aishwaryaa was Rajinikanth’s daughter attracted him to her?
He replied, “I don’t see her like that. I like her simplicity. If you think her father is simple, meet Aishwarya. She is 100 times simpler than her father. She treats everybody as an equal and can be friends with anybody. But I also like that she is extremely complicated. She is a good mother to my sons and is bringing them up extremely well.”
