New Delhi: This doesn’t happen every day and surely looks like a leaf straight taken out from a celluloid drama. South superstar Dhanush a few months back found him in a tight spot when an elderly couple claimed that he was their son and sought maintenance.
ANI reported that the superstar today appeared before the Madurai bench of Madras HC to verify birthmarks in connection with paternity claim made by an elderly couple.
The identification marks will be identified and a government doctor will examine Dhanush, reportedly. The superstar had previously moved Madras High Court bench in Madurai seeking to quash off a case filed in a lower court by an elderly couple who claimed that he was their son.
When the petition by Dhanush came up for hearing, Justice G Chockalingam directed the couple Kathiresan and Meenakshi to file their counter and posted the matter to February 8.
In their petition before the judicial magistrate’s court, the couple claimed the actor was their third son and also sought maintenance of Rs 65,000 per month from the actor as they could not fend for themselves.
They submitted that Dhanush was a school boy when he ran away to Chennai to get into the film world. They could not trace him then and recognised him while watching his movies, they said. Their efforts to meet him at Chennai had failed, they said.
However, Rajinikanth’s actor son-in-law had denied the submissions, saying ‘their entire statement is false’.
