Actor Dhanush


Dhanush is a Tamil film actor born on 28th July 1984. His name by birth is Venkatesh Prabhu. He is the son of director Kasthuri Raja and younger brother of director Selvaraghavan. He completed his Higher Secondary and entered into the cine field due to his brother's compulsion. 

He married Aishwarya Rajinikanth on 18th Nov, 2004. He has two sons named Yathra and Linga. Also, Dhanush has two elder sisters who are doctors.


Dhanush debuted in the film Thulluvadho Ilamai under the direction of his father Kasthuri Raja. The film became a big hit all over Tamil Nadu. Then, Dhanush was handled by his brother Selvaraghavan for Kadhal Konden, it was Selva's debut movie and it earned big fame for Dhanush.

Next, Thiruda Thirudi a commercial movie also became a blockbuster. Then, came his first failure Pudhukottaiyilirindhu Saravanan which was directed by Stanley. Then, Sullan movie also fell in the same category due to his poor physique and both these action movies flopped.

Again, he teamed up with his brother for Pudhupettai. Dhanush played the role of a gangster, his body language & acting earned him many fans but the movie did only an average run at the box office. Then, he tasted the success after 3 years with the commercial hit of Thiruvilayadal Arambam. The movie showed the love story of a poor guy and rich girl in a comic sense.

Parattai Engira Azhagu Sundaram released and it became a big disaster in his career. It was a remake of the Kannada movie Jogi. Then came Polladhavan during Deepvali, directed by a debutant Vetrimaran, which became a hit.

He also appeared in a cameo role, for his father-in-law Rajinikanth's venture Kuselan. For the second time, he worked with Vetrimaran and the movie gained positive reviews. Dhanush won the Best actor award in 2011 in the 58th National Awards for the movie Aadukalam.

The movie 3 was directed by his wife, Aishwarya Rajinikanth. The movie became a commercial success and his "Why this Kolaveri Di" Song became a big hit on YouTube, which got him his Hindi debut movie Ranjhanaa. For the first time, he acted in A R Rahman's music Mariyaan, a film by Bharath Bala.

Other Works:

Dhanush occasionally works as a playback singer and lyricist as well, generally in his own films. He was introduced as a playback singer in Pudhukottaiyilirundhu Saravanan by its composer Yuvan Shankar Raja and collaborated again with him in his brother Selvaraghavan's directorial, Pudhupettai. He sung further numbers in Selvaraghavan's films Aayirathil Oruvan and Mayakkam Enna.

His biggest success became the song "Why this Kolaveri Di" from his film 3, directed by his wife.
