The Madras High Court on Friday directed actor Dhanush to appear before it on February 28 in connection with a case filed by a couple who claimed he was their son.
On Friday, Dhanush’s petition seeking to quash the proceedings initiated by a judicial magistrate court in Melur based on a case filed by R Kathiresan (65) of Madurai and his wife Meenakshi (53) came up for hearing before Justice G Chockalingam.
The couple sought maintenance from the actor claiming that the actor was their son.
In addition to the school certificates, the actor’s counsel also submitted additional materials to prove that Dhanush first movie Thulluvadho Illamai got released on May 6, 2002 contradicting the couple’s claim that the actor had registered for employment in June 2002 and that he was subsequently admitted to class 11 in a Sivaganga school.
Though the transfer certificate submitted by the actor doesn’t mention any identity marks, the TC certificate submitted by the couple mentions the identity marks on his body. Hence the judge directed the actor to appear in person before the court on February 28 for verifying the claimed birthmarks.
On June 21, 1993, the birth certificate was issued. It means ten years after the birth of the petitioner (actor), the certificate was issued. If the certificate was true, the actor had to study Class 5 at that time.
How a birth certificate, issued after ten years of his birth, could be issued without mentioning the name of the child, asked the couple’s side.
