Born as Venkatesh Prabhu, Dhanush, is one of the most sought-after actors in the South Indian film industry. He had made a mark in the Hindi film industry with the blockbuster film, Raanjhanaa, and he etched his place in our hearts with his stellar performance. Apart from that, Dhanush is all set to make his Hollywood debut with the director duo, Russo Brothers, in their upcoming film, The Gray Man.
On the personal front, Dhanush had tied the knot with superstar, Rajinikanth's daughter, Aishwaryaa Rajinikanth, in the year 2004. However, after 18 years of marriage, the couple had announced their split on January 17, 2022. Aishwarya and Dhanush had left their fans in utter shock when they had shared a long note on their respective social media handles to announce their separation. Expressing their feelings in their separation note and asking people to give them privacy to deal with it, the couple had penned:
"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... Aishwaryaa and I have decided to part ways as a couple and take time to understand us as individuals for the better. Please do Respect our decision and give us the needed privacy to deal with this."
Though Dhanush is a respected actor, he often falls prey to controveries, and one such controversy was the infamous Suchi Leaks case. Suchitra Karthik, who was an RJ before making it big as a singer, had once accused Dhanush for spiking her drink and having forceful sex with her. Back in 2017, Suchitra garnered a lot of limelight when she started exposing the dark realities of the Kollywood industry. She had levied some serious allegations on Dhanush and had leaked a picture of herself lying with him in bed. However, the picture was later deleted from her Twitter handle. This act affected the actor's career and irked his massive fanbase.
Check out the picture below:
Taking to her Twitter handle, Suchitra shared a series of tweets claiming that actors, Dhanush and Anirudh and singer, Chinmayi, did nasty things to her. She had even threatened them that she would leak private pictures and videos as proof of the same. Suchitra revealed that Dhanusha and Anirudh had sex with her after mixing something in her drink, and added that she was drowsy at that time. Her tweet could be read as:
"I challenge #Dhanush, #Anirudh, #Chinmayi - I know you will troll and deny this, Do you have guts to deny this cheap act? I took those clips from #Dhanush phone and #anirudh phone, and those pics will be leaked to you as promised to you all. Both had sex with me and left me in the bed. With my half sleep, both were watching a #Chinmayi clip that was recorded a few yrs ago… but somehow they mixed something in it that made me drowsy and I was flat. It was a horrible experience after that cannot be said here.”
As Suchitra dragged Dhanush into the controversy and maligned his name, the latter chose to maintain his silence over the same. However, he got in a major trouble when he had once walked out of an interview on being asked about Suchi Leaks. It had so happened that in an interview with TV9, the interviewer had asked Dhanush to talk about the allegations made on him. Clearly, Dhanush wasn’t comfortable talking about the controversy, but the interviewer went on to probe him further and asked him if he experienced any mental agony during that time. This made Dhanush angry and he yelled at the interviewer before walking out of the interview. He could be heard saying:
"I don't know what you are talking about. I have no proper idea about it. I am busy with my film and I don't concentrate on such things. Who said I went through mental agony? Did I ever say that to anyone? I don't have to share things about my personal life with you. Will you reveal your personal matters to me? There is something called privacy... I am not answerable to you and this is a stupid interview."
Well, bygones are bygones, and now, Dhanush is riding high on the professional front, and he doesn't let negativity affect him.
