The elderly couple from Madurai, who have claimed Dhanush is their son, said that they have evidence to corroborate their argument. R Kathiresan, who claims to be the father of the actor, in his counter affidavit filed before the judicial magistrate court in Melur, said that he can produce the material for scrutiny.
“He has provided a false birth certificate. He was born to us in Madurai. We took care of him and educated him. We admitted him in Class XI at the Arumugampillai Seethaiammal Higher Secondary School in Thirupattur in Sivaganga district. He studied there by staying in the government hostel for one month, from where he moved to Chennai and entered the cinema field. The actor himself had given statements to media that he was born in Madurai,” Kathiresan submitted before judge G Chockalingam.
“Dhanush says he was born to Vijayalakshmi at the Government Hospital in Egmore in Chennai on July 28, 1983 and his original name was Venkatesh Prabhu. It is a false claim. We have necessary proof to substantiate our claim. Our relatives, his friends, classmates, teachers and the local residents will give evidence in support of our claim. We would produce necessary documents before the trial court, he said.
Well, we have to see what will happen and how the old couple proves Dhanush is their son.
