The couple got married on 18 November 2004. They have two sons named Yatra and Linga. The couple even worked together in Aishwaryaa’s directorial debut ‘3’ which featured a world-hit song ‘Kolaveri Di’. She has even directed movies like Vai Raja Vai and a documentary movie named Cinema Veeran. She is also one of the singers of the hit song Un Mela Aasadhan from the movie Aayirathil Oruvan and dubbed for Reema Sen in the same movie.
Dhanush then called Aishwarya ‘a friend’ on Twitter, on another occasion. However, after this announcement, the two have never appeared together in public. However, today morning, both Aishwarya and Dhanush were seen together in a photograph along with their sons Yatra and Linga. Yatra became the sports captain of his school, and his parents were there to celebrate the happy occasion.
Aishwaryaa then took to her personal Instagram to share the good news. “What a way to start the day ! Monday morning watching the Investiture Ceremony of school ,where my first born takes up oath as sports captain🎖
#proudmommymoment #theygrowupsofast 🧡” she captioned. Check post here:

While there is no official confirmation regarding the reason for their separation, many speculate that rumours of Dhanush’s previous link ups may be the reason. For example, when Aishwaryaa directed the movie ‘3’ and cast Shruti alongside Dhanush, there were rumours that the two were involved romantically. In fact, when the movie released back in 2012, some reports even said that their marriage was in a loop because of Dhanush’s alleged extramarital relationship with Shruti Haasan. However, these rumours rested after both Shruti Haasan and Aishwaryaa dismissed them.
When Amala Paul divorced her ex-Husband AL Vijay in 2016, many rumours said that Dhanush had a major role to play in it. While an affair or a link up was not directly spelled out, AL Alagappan, father of AL Vijay, said that the two divorced because of her taking up ‘Amma Kannakku’, a film produced by Dhanush, although she promised to quit acting after marriage. Amala Paul acted with Dhanush in Velayilla Pattadhari in 2014, the same year she tied the knot with AL Vijay. Amma Kanakku came out in 2016, the year they announced their separation. So, many rumours came up linking the coincidences.
