Aishwarya Dhanush has recently donned a new avatar. The talented elder daughter of superstar Rajnikanth, who is married to actor Dhanush, has recently turned director with a film which has Dhanush (who else could it be?) in the lead. The film is being produced by Kasturi Raja, noted film-maker and father of Dhanush.
Speaking about her film, Aishwarya Dhanush says “It had been my long-held dream to become a director. I had watched m father’s films from my younger days and obviously, the passion for cinema and making films was always there. I used to write a lot (of scripts) right from my school-going days.
“It’s my passion for cinema which made me work as an assistant director in my father’s ‘Baba’. I then got married and had my child. The responsibilities of running a family made me postpone my dream for some more years. I’m basically a writer who is interested in knowing about the technical nuances that to into the making of a movie. I used to discuss with Rajini a lot about movies.
“I used to discuss about camera angles, etc. and got to work under Suresh Krishna after my college days were over. When I told my father recently about my idea to direct a film, he was pleasantly surprised. I started this project with the full blessings of my father; in fact, whenever I start anything new, I do so only after seeking and getting his blessings.
“Rajnikanth has given me some useful tips about making a film. I’m quite happy that I’m able to take care of my father at a time when he really needs help. I’m also thankful to Dhanush for liking the script and agreeing to star in it. By the grace of the Almighty, I’m sure it would be a successful film,” concludes Aishwarya Dhanush.
