The separation announcement

Dhanush and Aishwaryaa tied the knot in 2004 and have two children. "Eighteen 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," Dhanush and Aishwaryaa wrote in their identical separation announcement.

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! Spread love, D," Dhanush wrote.
