Madurai HC reserves judgment in Melur couple’s claim on Dhanush as their son


The Madurai Bench of the High Court of Madras has reserved its judgment in a case of review filed by a Melur couple – Kathiresan and Meenatchi – which claims that the national award-winning actor was actually their son who separated from the family during the early part of the last decade.

The couple had earlier requested the Court to direct Dhanush to at least pay them the maintenance amount even if he didn’t recognize them as his ‘actual parents’. A Melur Court had earlier directed Dhanush to appear before it for interrogation. Dhanush moved the Madurai Bench of High Court seeking ban on Melur Court’s direction for personal appearance as well as quashing the case.

Dhanush later underwent medical inspection wherein it was proved that he didn’t bear on his body any birthmarks as claimed by the Melur couple. The High Court Bench then quashed Kathiresan’s case after which Kathiresan filed a review petition stating that Dhanush had ‘tampered’ with his educational and caste certificates and demanded action against him for the same.

Justice Rajamanickam held the trial on the review and as the Court debated whether the earlier verdict merited another review. Kathiresan’s counsel told the Court that there was indeed some ‘problems’ with the caste/educational certificates after which the Judge postponed the case sine die.
