After being in love for some time, they had tied the knot in 2004. They were blessed with two children - Yatra and Linga.

What Dhanush's Father Says?
As far as Dhanush's father Kasturi Raja is concerned, they parted ways because of some disagreements, he told Dailythanthi as per News 18 website. It is a quarrel between the husband and wife that usually takes place between a married couple. Apparently, this is not a divorce, the director said.

"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," Kasthuri Raja added.
