Dhanush and Aishwaryaa Rajanikanth’s separation was no surprise to their fans, say those close to the couple. In a social media post, the couple announced their split and asked everyone to respect their decision and give them privacy. So, what prompted the couple to go separate ways?
An insider close to the couple spills the beans on what led up to this moment. An actor who is also a friend of the couple reveals, “Dhanush is a workaholic”. There have been many instances when his work commitments – travelling between cities and outdoor film shoots – have taken a toll on his family life.
Each time Dhanush and Aishwaryaa had any sort of friction, he’d go on to sign a new film, perhaps in a way to keep himself engaged in work. It almost felt like he was using his work to get away from his failing relationship and it was evident that it was taking a huge toll on them both.
Despite back-to-back films and other work commitments like overseeing production work, looking into the OTT space and planning to foray into new projects, the last six months seem to have been the most difficult for the couple.
Dhanush wanted to finish the promotions of Atrangi Re before he made the official announcement. It was evident that he was going through something very personal and wanted to keep it to him. Aishwaryaa has taken to fitness and her other areas of interest, like charities and women empowerment projects that she undertakes.
