Aishwarya Dhanush, daughter of Superstar Rajinikanth, is a celebrity in her own right. Having directed 3 and Vai Raja Vai, she is now basking in the glory of the release of her first book Standing on an Apple Box: The Story of A Girl Among the Stars.

Aishwarya discussed her book with Sudha Sadhanand of Westland Books at the Jaipur Literary Festival on January 21, 2016.

She revealed that she'd spent most of her childhood days in Bengaluru and had had a perfectly normal childhood despite being the Superstar's daughter. She recalled playing on the streets, buying vegetables and eating chaat with friends and doing almost everything that an ordinary child would do.

The Hindu quoted her as saying: “Nobody treated me like a celebrity’s kid. Most of my childhood was spent in Banaglore, playing on the road, walking to school, buying vegetables at a mandi, having chaat with my friends on my birthday.”

According to the report, Aishwarya began the discussion by speaking in Tamil and asserting her complete support of the volatile jallikattu issue in Tamil Nadu: “I am a proud Tamil. Jallikattu must, will and should happen. We need everyone’s support for jallikattu. And I salute the protesting students.”
