The Madras High Court today allowed the plea of Tamil actor Dhanush for quashing an elderly couple’s lawsuit claiming that he was their runaway son and seeking maintenance.
After hearing both the sides, Justice P N Prakash of the court’s Madurai bench rejected the couple’s submissions and said their statement was false as claimed by the actor.
The high court had earlier reserved its order on Dhanush’s petition against the couple’s lawsuit in a magisterial court.
The counsel for the couple said they would appeal against the order.
The couple, R Kathiresan (65) and Meenakshi (53), had moved the Melur judicial magistrate court claiming that Dhanush was their son.
