As per the latest reports, Kollywood Superstar Dhanush has been summoned by the Madras High Court in the paternity case. An Etimes TV report mentioned that an elderly couple has filed a case claiming that Dhanush is their son and that he ran away when he was in class 11 to pursue a career in acting. Kathiresan and his wife Meenakshi stated that the actor was their third son and he had run away from home to enter the film industry. The couple also mentioned that they sought maintenance of Rs 65,000 from him.
Back in 2017, the Madurai Bench of the Madurai High Court dismissed charges against Dhanush in the paternity row case. The Ranjhaana was summoned after the couple claimed in the court that documents of the paternity test submitted by Dhanush were forged. However, the court dismissed the case saying that there was no document to prove that the documents were forged by Dhanush.
Reportedly, a DNA test was suggested by the court to know the truth but Dhanush and his lawyers declined it. Following this, the actor was asked by the court to undergo a medical examination to verify his identification marks. However, it is said that the results of the same were inconclusive. Although it’s possible to remove birthmarks and superficial moles with help of laser technology, scars can’t be removed.
