Dhanush and Shruti Haasan are two of the biggest and versatile stars of the South Indian film industry. While both enjoy a loyal fanbase and are emerging as pan-India celebs, the duo had rocked the industry in 2011-2012 with rumours of their alleged affair during the shooting of their film 3, which was directed by the Raanjhanaa star's wife Aishwarya Dhanush. It is said that Aishwarya (Rajinikanth’s daughter), who is a childhood friend of Shruti (Kamal Haasan’s daughter), desperately wanted the latter for her directorial debut as the lead actress and after overcoming several difficulties, she managed to cast the actress in 3 opposite her husband.
Little did Aishwarya know that this casting will impact her marriage as there were reports that during the production and promotion of the film, Dhanush spent maximum time with Shruti Haasan and avoided to make public appearances with his wife. When asked about this rumour, Shruti told a magazine that she doesn't bother about what people say about them as Dhanush is her best friend in the business and has always helped her artistically. Interestingly, soon after the release of their venture 3, which became a hit with the song 'Kolaveri D' turning out to be a rage, the buzz around their relationship fizzled out. In fact, the superstar’s wife Aishwarya had also said in an interview back then that those rumours were baseless and untrue.
