When asked how he managed to impress the superstar and his daughter, Dhanush said, "To impress Rajinikanth, you just have to be honest and simple, and I am still trying to impress Aishwaryaa."
However, Dhanush said that his wife is proud that he has a huge fan following. "She is very happy and she is very proud," he said.
Dhanush, who will be next seen sharing screen-space with Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan in Shamitabh, says it was a learning experience to work with the actor.
"We first met at an award function and later on the sets. He made me very comfortable. It was a great adventure and learning experience working with him," he said.
Directed by R Balki, Shamitabh marks the Bollywood debut of veteran actors Kamal Haasan and Sarika's younger daughter Akshara. The film is slated to release on January 6.
