Even Dhanush shared a music video that Aishwaryaa directed and congratulated his 'friend'. The tweet got fans excited about a possible reunion for the two but it seems that they are ready to move on.

Aishwaryaa has also done playback for two films- one in 2003 for a film called 'Whistle' and then in 2010 she sang 'Un Mela Aasadhan' for the film 'Aayirathil Oruvan'. The song fetched her Best Playback Singer (female) nomination at the Filmfare awards.
