Standing On An AppleBox: The Story of a Girl Among the Stars, a book penned by Aishwarya Dhanush will be released on Thalaivar's birthday, Dec 12. The book gives a glimpse of Aishwarya's life as a starkid--growing up in Bangalore and Chennai, in a household that resolutely kept out any hint of her father’s superstardom.

The description reads, "Aishwaryaa writes with disarming honesty about life as 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. Intensely personal, but also inspirational, Aishwarya's memoir is an unusually frank insight into growing up in cinema-land."
