Book Name:- Standing on an Apple Box: The Story of a Girl Among the Stars
Author Name:- Aishwaryaa Rajinikanth Dhanush
Director, dancer and goodwill advocate for the United Nations: Aishwaryaa Rajinikanth DhanushRajinikanth or the wife of southern cinema’s biggest star Dhanush. Growing up in Bangalore and then Madras, in a household that resolutely kept out any hint of her father’s superstardom, she was a quiet, shy child whose greatest pleasure was an occasional meal out and a visit to Marina Beach. It was not cinema but the law that became a preoccupation when she started thinking about college & career but fate and her mother had other plans for her.
Aishwaryaa writes with disarming honesty about life as Superstar Rajinikanth’s daughter, of falling in love and raising two boys with Dhanush, of fighting her own demons and finding satisfaction in a career of her choice. She reflects on the many roles a woman has to balance at home and outside—in her case, under the watchful gaze of cameras and celebrity-watchers.
A playful meditation on the difficulties and joys of being a woman in this age, Standing on an Apple Box is as much a celebration of individual fulfillment as it is of the family.
