Mumbai: Dhanush, who is married to Rajnikanth's daughter, says being the son-in-law of the iconic actor has not helped or affected him.

Dhanush married Rajnikanth's daughter Aishwarya in 2004.

"Being his son-in-law doesn't do anything to me actually. I have always done my own work. It (his name) neither helped me nor affected me," Dhanush said in an interview.

He says it's not worth comparing his work with his father-in-law as their styles of working are quite different.

"My choice of films are different. My method of acting is completely different from his. So there is no room for comparison. And comparing a 20-25 films old guy with an icon is absolutely rubbish," he said.

Dhanush is entering Bollywood with 'Raanjhanaa', but has not discussed about the film with his father-in-law. "To be very honest he has been very busy with his work while I've been with mine. We haven't spoken about this film yet," he said, adding he never discusses work with his dad-in-law.

When asked about Aishwarya's reaction about him doing a Hindi film, Dhanush said she is yet to watch it, but right now they are quite thrilled that he is speaking in Hindi.

Dhanush will be seen romancing Sonam Kapoor in 'Raanjhanaa' which also stars Abhay Deol, Swara Bhaskar and Suraj Singh and is set to hit the screens on June 21.

Even before his film releases, Dhanush has decided to do yet another Hindi movie with same director - Anand L Rai.

"Yes, I am doing my next film here with Anand sir. We share a very good rapport. When we were shooting for 'Raanjhanaa', we came up with an idea and it was very fascinating. I thought we would do something later, but when we finished 'Raanjhanaa' we got very close to each other and then I agreed for the film," Dhanush said.

However, the actor refused to divulge details about the film, saying it was too early to say which genre it falls into. But he revealed that he would co-produce it.
