Here's What Dhanush Did For The Paternity Suit

Regular readers might remember a news we published in the last week of September last year. A couple based out of Malampatti from the Melur taluk of Madurai district had claimed that actor Dhanush was their son. What started as a simple news snowballed into a court case.

Kathiresan and Meenatchi stated that in 1985 they gave birth to a son who they named as Kalaiarasan. They said that this son left them while studying 11th standard and is now in Chennai under the name of Dhanush. Apparently, worried on why he hasn't gotten back to them, they've tried contacting Dhanush but they stated that Dhanush's father Kasthuri Raja and family are not letting them to see him.

If this wasn't enough, the couple had even filed a complaint in the Police Station and has even contacted the CM cell regarding this issue. The case has now reached the steps of our country's judicial system. The couple have now filed a case at the Melur Magistrate Court citing their poverty and ill health and have requested an alimony of Rs. 65 Thousand every month from Dhanush.

Dhanush has now submitted a petition in Madras High Court over the false paternity suit filed by the couple. He has alleged that they've filed the suit to blackmail him for monetary benefits.

The 3 actor has submitted proof of birth which states that he was born on July 28, 1983 and not on November 7, 1985 as the couple have alleged. He also claimed in his petition that he was born to Krishnamoorthy aka Kasturi Raja, a well-known director and Vijayalakshmi and had changed his name from Venkatesh Prabhu to Dhanush when he ventured into films.
