A couple from Madurai has approached a court claiming that actor Dhanush is their son, who is not providing them monthly maintenance for their livelihood. The Melur Judicial Magistrate Court has now directed the actor to appear on 12 January.
According to a report in Indian Express, the aged couple, Kathiresan and Meenakshi, has claimed that they have childhood photographs of Dhanush as well as a birth certificate. Kathiresan and Meenakshi moved the court on 7 November on this matter with the evidence in hand and also claimed that Dhanush’s real name is Kaliselvan.
The couple have alleged that their son studied up to the 10th class at a government school in Melur and continued his studies at a private school in Tiruppathur in Sivaganga district.
According to their claims, Dhanush ran away from home in 2002 after having performed very poorly in his studies, then moved to Chennai and started acting in films.
Kathiresan and Meenakshi have moved the court asking for a monthly maintenance of Rs 65,000 per month from Dhanush, claiming that the actor has neither visited them nor allowed them to meet him.
