Dhanush Paternity Case: Actor Asked To Explain False Documents Charges

Dhanush At The 'Maari 2' Press Meet

The Madurai Court has ordered for a notice to be sent to actor Dhanush, and the Madurai police, seeking explanation for the false document charges made by Kathiresan and Meenakshi. The couple have claimed that Dhanush is their son, and are demanding maintenance from him.


On April 21, a magistrate court had quashed the couple’s plea that on grounds that the petitioners did not make a prima-facie case for trial and that their petition was devoid of merit.

A birth certificate and school transfer certificate was produced by the actor. The birth certificate issued by the Corporation of Chennai, identified him as being born to director Kasthuriraja and his wife, at the Egmore Children’s Hospital in Chennai. The HC later ruled in the actor’s favour and dismissed all proceedings.

Kathiresan, in his complaint, claimed that the actor had dodged the documents which he had submitted before the court. He also said that the Madurai police, with whom he filed the complaint, took no action against this. The case was heard on Monday by justice Chamundeshwari Prabha, who ordered the court to send a notice to the actor, and asked the Madurai police for an explanation regarding the petition. The case has been adjourned for a hearing on February 13.


A few months back, the couple had claimed that Dhanush was their son and filed a complaint against the actor at the Ko Pudur Police Station in Madurai. During the proceedings of this case too, the couple said that the birth certificate submitted by Dhanush was fake.

This is their third attempt to quash documentary evidence that Dhanush has produced in court. As Silverscreen had reported, the couple’s earlier complaint said that Dhanush had filed fake documents in the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court to wrongly prove that he was the son of Kasthuriraja.
