Megastar Rajinikanth’s son-in-law Dhanush was dragged to court by an elderly couple who claimed Dhanush is their son.
On February 28, Dhanush appeared before the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court to get an identification mark verification test. The elderly couple claimed that their son had a mole on left clavicle bone part and a scar of the left elbow.
The report, filed by Government Rajaji Hospital’s dean Vairamuthu Raju and Madurai Medical college Principal Meenakshi Sundaram earlier on March 2, was examined by Justice P N Prakash of the high court’s Madurai bench.
The report had been filed in response to the court’s February 28 directive for medical verification of Dhanush’s identification marks in light of the elderly couple’s claim. “Dhanush was examined in daylight and also using torchlight without using any eraser and only water and spirit,” the report read, while concluding that “there was no mole over his left collar or scar in his left elbow.”
It said “It said ‘it was possible to remove a small superficial mole completely, but not a scar using even plastic surgery. At the most, its size can only be reduced.’
The report said a small superficial mole had been removed using laser technique without any trace. Similarly removal of another large mole can be seen by thermoscope, it said.
After perusing the report, Justice Prakash posted the matter to March 27.
An elderly couple from Melur, R Katharesan and Meenakshi from Manampatti village, claimed to be Dhanush’s parents. They argued that he is their third child, who ran away from home in Class 10, in order to become an actor. They filed a petition in a local court asking the actor to pay a maintenance of Rs 65,000 per month as they were unable to fend for themselves.
The couple claimed that the actor had several identification marks that included a mole a on his right collarbone and a scar on his right forearm. Both the marks are mentioned in the school Transfer Certificate of their son, they claim.
The actor, however, has denied the submissions saying their entire statements were false.
