A Judicial Magistrate Court in Melur in Madurai on Friday summoned actor Dhanush to appear before it on January 12 next year, based on a petition filed by an old couple claiming to be the actor’s real parents.
Kathiresan and Meenakshi of Malampatti near Melur had filed the petition before the judicial magistrate court seeking maintenance from the actor claiming that he was their third son. The couple claimed that Dhanush had run away from home during his school days. Though the couple had searched for him, they could not trace him, the petition said.
The couple claimed that they recognised him when they watched his movies. Though they had tried to meet him in Chennai, they could not do so, the couple claimed. They moved the court seeking a monthly maintenance of Rs 65,000 from their ‘son’ as they can’t fend for themselves.
