Dhanush moves Madras HC on elderly couple's claim that he is their son


Popular actor Dhanush on Wednesday moved a Madras High Court bench in Madurai. He has countermanded a case filed in a lower court by an elderly couple who claimed that he was their son.

Dhanush, son-in-law of superstar Rajinikant, also sought a stay on the proceedings pending in the judicial magistrate’s court at nearby Melur.

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.

The actor denied the submissions, saying “their entire statement is false”.
