Being Rajinikanth’s son-in-law hasn’t helped me

RaanjhanaaThe Tamil superstar Dhanush, who is married to Rajinikanth’s daughter Aishwarya, says being the son-in-law of the iconic actor has not helped or affected him.

Dhanush got married to Rajinikanth’s daughter Aishwarya back in 2004.

Dhanush said in an interview that, “Being his son-in-law doesn’t do anything to me actually. I have always done my own work. It (his name) neither helped me nor affected me.

He added that it’s not worth comparing his work with his father-in-law as their styles of working are quite different.

He said that, “My choices of films are different. My method of acting is completely different from his. So there is no room for comparison. And comparing a 20-25 films old guy with an icon is absolutely rubbish.”

Dhanush is coming up with his first film in Bollywood titled ‘Raanjhanaa’, but has not discussed about the film with his father-in-law. “To be very honest he has been very busy with his work while I’ve been with mine. We haven’t spoken about this film yet,” he said, adding he never discusses work with his dad-in-law.

When asked about Aishwarya’s reaction about him doing a Hindi film, Dhanush said she is yet to watch it, but right now they are quite thrilled that he is speaking in Hindi.

In the movie, Dhanush will be seen romancing Sonam Kapoor which also stars Abhay Deol, Swara Bhaskar and Suraj Singh and is all set to hit the screens on June 21.

Even before his film releases, Dhanush has decided to do yet another Hindi movie with same director Anand L Rai.

Dhanush said that, “Yes I am doing my next film here with Anand sir. We share a very good rapport. When we were shooting for ‘Raanjhanaa’, we came up with an idea and it was very fascinating. I thought we would do something later, but when we finished ‘Raanjhanaa’ we got very close to each other and then I agreed for the film.”

However, the actor refused to divulge details about the film, saying it was too early to say which genre it falls into. But he revealed that he would co-produce it.
