Aishwarya and Dhanush'Aishwarya is my biggest strength, critic and top it all, a great mother.'

Everyone has their set of close friends.

We saw Bollywood's BFFs.

On Friendship Day, we decided to ask Tamil star Dhanush who his best friend is.

"My wife, Aishwarya. I can share anything with her," he says instantly.

"She is my biggest strength, critic and top it all, a great mother. She sacrificed her career to take care of our kids," he adds.

Dhanush got married to Rajinikanth's older daughter Aishwarya on November 18, 2004. They have two sons, Yatra (born in 2006) and Linga (born in 2010).

Aishwarya started her career in 2003 as a playback singer in the film Whistle; she sang the song Natpae Natpae.

"I asked her to pursue her career and that I would take care of the kids but she said no," he says, adding, "What she has done is truly commendable. I believe your partner should be your best friend."

In 2012, Aishwarya turned director with the film 3, where had the popular song Kolaveri D.

In 2015, she directed Vai Raja Vai.

Aishwarya is currently working on Mariyappan, a film based on the true story of a 21-year-old high jumper from the Salem district of Tamil Nadu.

Dhanush, meanwhile, is promoting his new film VIP 2 with Kajol.
