Early life and education
Dhanush was born to Kasthuri Raja and Vijaya Mahadevan. He was not exactly interested in pursuing the arts; initially, he aspired to become a chef!
Despite that initial career path, his passion for acting emerged when his brother Selvaraghavan encouraged him to try his hand at the craft. Dhanush comes from a family replete with established filmmakers; both his father and elder brother have a prominent place in the cinema business.
Dhanush’s performance in the critically acclaimed Kaadhal Kondein opened up doors of opportunity for the actor. Several notable films followed, including Dreams, Adhu Oru Kana Kaalam, and Pudhupettai. Of course, his breakthrough performance was in Polladhavan, which released in 2007.
Beginnings in Film
Dhanush started his film career with his father’s 2002 drama film Thulluvadho Ilamai.
The coming-of-age film did not see much commercial “success,” but it gave Dhanush some hands-on learning experience of acting and filmmaking.
Further Film Career
Dhanush went on to star in Yaaradi Nee Mohini, Aadukalam, 3, Maryan, Kodi, and Asuran among many others. Noteworthy among these are the 2003 success of Kaadhal Kondein, in which he played an obsessive lover, and the 2011 drama Aadukalam where his role helped him win India’s National Film Award for Best Actor.
Dhanush’s achievements have come often and have been awards aplenty. In 2011, he was bestowed with the Padma Shri award. He has also won the National Film Award for Best Actor, Best Lyrics Writer, and Best Playback Singer. In addition, he has racked over 30 Filmfare awards and generated plenty of national and international attention through his acting vertical.
Getting married at a young age of 21 to Aishwarya Rajinikanth, daughter of leading Tamil actor Rajinikanth, Dhanush journeyed forward while having the most important support by his side – his spouse. The couple has two sons. Dhanush has always been very private about his personal life and has preferred to stay away from intrusions into his personal space for the most part.
Dhanush and Soundarya Rajnikanth Aishwarya’s younger sister co-founded Wunderbar Films in 201 in Chennai.
The company focuses on primarily Tamil cinema productions and distribution, with some venture into the production of Malayalam and Hindi films.

Dhanush’s artistic ventures reflect not just talent, but also his embracing the new in every aspect of cinema. He is a multi-dimensional artist who does not like to stick to one realm of existence, easily justifying his status as a pillar in the Indian film industry’s context.
Humbled and committed, Dhanush has always put forth his best foot and delivered memorable portrayals that never fail to resonate with audiences. He has thus been an inspiration for the present and future generations of aspiring actors and young adults.
