Tamil superstar Dhanush who married Rajnikanth’s daughter Aishwarya, says that being the son-in-law of the legendary actor has not really helped his career nor has it affected it.
“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,” Dhanush said in an interview.
He also says that he should not be compared with his father-in-law as their styles of working differ drastically.
“My choice 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,” he said.
Dhanush is making his Bollywood debut with Raanjhanaa, but the actor says he 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 his wife’s reaction with him doing Hindi cinema, Dhanush said she hasn’t watched it yet but as of now they are pretty much thrilled with the fact that he is speaking Hindi.
Dhanush will be seen romancing Sonam Kapoor in Raanjhanaa which also features Abhay Deol, Swara Bhaskar and Suraj Singh.
It is scheduled for a June 21 release.
