Anirudh Ravichander, the gifted music composer and singer in the Tamil cinema industry, who had been in the news for both good and bad reasons, is a relative of Aishwarya Dhanush.
How are they related?
They are cousins. This is how it is.
Aishwarya R. Dhanush's mom Latha Rajinikanth and Anirudh Ravichander's dad Ravi Raghavendra are siblings (sister and brother).
Rajini's wife is an elder sister of Anirudh's father. Anirudh is the nephew of Latha Rajinikanth.
So both Anirudh and Aishwarya are cousins and it is nothing wrong in they both hugging each other and posing for the cameras.
Of-course, Aishwarya was the one who gave chances to compose music in her short films which eventually gave Anirudh the golden chance to music for '3'.
