- Couple claim actor Dhanush is their son, who ran away from school
- They demand maintainence; Madras High Court rejects petition
- Dhanush is Tamil superstar Rajinikanth's son-in-law
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, say this is an attempt to extract money from him.
On February 28, 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.
