Aishwarya Dhanush Throwback: After 18 years of marriage, Dhanush and Aishwarya announced their separation, shocking their friends and admirers. While we struggle to process this news, we came across an old post by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan from early last year in which she discussed the concept of marriage.
Aishwaryaa posted a lovely post for her father Rajinikanth and mother Latha on the occasion of their 40th wedding anniversary on February 26, 2021.
‘She accepted them like family, and he took care of hers like his own till the end of their days,’ Aishwaryaa wrote with a photo of her parents and grandparents. I honestly think that my grandparents are angels who are watching over you both as you navigate life’s many twists and turns. I’ve discovered.. (so far n still learning ..) Marriage entails bearing one other’s baggage (often physically in my case… Compassion is more than just a feeling… Companionship is built on the foundation of friendship… The house is always your home… I adore you, but I also love you’ll…the family we’ve created… As we get older as two persons, we are putting the pieces of life’s jigsaw together to give it significance at every step. I’m going to take a breather…because…right now.” She went on to say, “I simply want to wish my Appa and Amma a very happy anniversary! I adore you both to the moon and back! #happyanniversary.’
Dhanush announced their breakup on Twitter, writing, “18 years of togetherness as friends, partner, parents, and well-wishers to each other.” Growing, learning, adjusting, and adapting have all been part of the path… We’ve arrived at a crossroads in our lives… Aishwarya and I have chosen to split up as a pair and spend more time getting to know each other as individuals. Please accept our choice and provide us with the necessary privacy to handle this. Om Namashivayaa. Spread Love.D’
