Aishwaryaa and Dhanush announced their split in January this year after being together for 18 years. A statement they released on their social media accounts to reveal the news read, "18 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."
Speaking to Hindustan Times a month after the announcement, Aishwaryaa had said, “Love is a very generic emotion. It’s nothing to do with one human being or one personal thing. And as I evolve, the definition of love is also evolving with me”.
