Actor Dhanush is relieved finally as Madras HC dismisses elderly couple’s parentage claim

The torment actor Dhanush had to undergo has finally come to an end. Madras High Court on Friday dismissing the petition that an elderly couple filed claiming that national award winning Tamil actor is their long-lost son and demanded Rs 65,000 monthly as maintenance. The Court on Friday after hearing many months from the both parties dismissed the petition.

In November last year, the couple, Kathiresan and Meenakshi, had claimed that Dhanush was their son who ran away from a hostel when he was in Class 11 and wanted him to pay a monthly maintenance. They had produced a class 10 certificate to back up their case, which included the identification marks.

The actor's lawyers, however, said this is an attempt to extract money from him.

On 28 February, the Madurai bench of the high court had ordered the Madurai Medical College to ascertain if the actor had these two identification marks. The doctors were also asked if the mole and the scar could be erased without a trace.

The actor was examined by doctors in the court premises. Dhanush had refused a DNA test. The doctors could not find any identification marks mentioned. They agreed that though it is possible to remove superficial moles using laser technology, scars can't be removed.

The elderly couple had alleged that after running away from the hostel, the actor met filmmaker Kasturi Raja, believed to be his biological father, and worked as a domestic help. They also claimed that Kasturi Raja's family accepted him as their son following his cinematic success.
