CHENNAI: The Madurai bench of the Madras High Court on Friday quashed the maintenance case filed against actor Dhanush by a couple from Melur, Tamil Nadu.

Last month, Dhanush appeared before the Madurai bench in connection with an elderly couple's claim that he is their biological son.

A bench headed by Chief Justice G Chockalingam ordered the government doctors and the registrar of the High Court bench to verify his identification marks.

After the authentication process, the judge adjourned the case to March 2 for final hearing.

Reportedly, the actor refuted their claim while stating that this was a way to extort money from him.

In their petition before the judicial magistrate's court, the couple - R Kathiresan (65) and his wife K Meenakshi's (53) claimed that the actor was their third son. The couple also sought maintenance of Rs. 65,000 per month from the actor.

According to the plea, the actor was a school boy when he ran away to Chennai. The couple could not trace him then but recognised him while watching his movies.

But the actor clarified that his birth name R K Venkatesh Raja was changed to Dhanush K Raja in 2003. The couple in their plea said the papers that were filed before the court clearly stated that his name was mentioned as Dhanush in 2002.
