Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma shared a series of tweets condemning the marriage and celebrating the divorce as Dhanush announced his separation from Aishwarya Rajinikanth. They were married for 18 years and have two sons – Yatra and Linga.
RGV wrote on Twitter, “Star talaq is a good practice to warn the youth about the dangers of marriage.” In a followup post, he wrote that ‘love doesn’t kill faster than marriage’. He said that it is best to ‘keep on loving’ rather than entering a ‘prison called marriage’.
“Love in a marriage lasts for a short period of time on the day they celebrate it, which is 3 to 5 days,” wrote RGV. He also claimed that ‘smart people love and dumbo marry’.
RGV advocated celebrating divorce with pomp. He wrote, “To be free only divorce must be celebrated with music and marriages must be silent in the process of testing each other’s menacing virtues.”
In another tweet, RGV claimed that marriage means getting caught in a ‘continuous cycle of unhappiness’. He wrote, “Marriage is the worst custom imposed on the society by our evil forefathers to perpetuate the continuous cycle of misery and misery.”
On Monday, Dhanush and Aishwarya announced their separation in a joint statement. “18 years of togetherness as friends, couple, as parents and as each other’s well-wishers. The journey has been one of growth, understanding, adjustment and adaptation. Today we stand at a place where our paths diverge. Aishwarya and I have decided to separate as a couple and take time to understand us as individuals for the better,” it read.

“Please respect our decision and provide the confidentiality we need to deal with it. Om Namashivayya! Spread the love, D,” added the note shared by Dhanush on Twitter. Aishwarya posted the same message on Instagram and asked fans to be sensible and keep showering them with the same love.
In the past too, RGV has expressed its cynicism about the institution of marriage. After announcing the separation of Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Ruth Prabhu, she tweeted how ‘marriages are made in hell and divorces are made in heaven’. He also talked about the need to celebrate divorce when Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao’s marriage ended.
