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.
R Katharesan (60) and K Meenakshi (55) from Manampatti village in Melur Taluk have filed the petition that Dhanush's original name is Kaliselvan, who was born on November 7, 1985. They have produced a birth certificate along with a couple of photos to prove their allegations.
The elderly couple claim that Dhanush is one of their three children, who did his schooling in RC Higher Secondary School and Government Boys Higher Secondary School in Melur. When he was admitted to a private institution for class 11 in Thirpuathur in Sivaganga district in 2002, he escaped from the school to Chennai to pursue a career in acting. Soon, he rechristened himself as Dhanush K Raja.
They realised that Dhanush was their son after watching him in his movies. The couple allege that their several attempts to meet the actor have not come o fruition. They claim that his two other children are not in a situation to contribute for their medicinal and other expenses. Hence, they want Dhanush to pay a monthly maintenance of Rs 65,000.
On the other hand, Dhanush has a few interesting projects in his kitty. Currently, he is working on Power Pandi and Vada Chennai. His other flicks are: Velaiyilla Pattathari 2 and Enai Noki Paayum Thota.
