Following rumors that actor Dhanush had removed identification marks on his body by laser treatment, the doctors who examined the actor have stated that they did not release such reports. They also added that the news being circulated in the media were false and the medical reports have been submitted to the Madras High Court Bench in Madurai.
The Madras High Court closely examined a medical report on the disputed parentage of popular actor Dhanush, filed in reply to a couple’s plea claiming him to be their run-away son and seeking maintenance from him.
The report, filed by Government Rajaji Hospital’s dean Vairamuthu Raju and Madurai Medical college Principal Meenakshi Sundaram earlier on 2 March, 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 28 February 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 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 27 March.
The Madurai bench of the high court earlier on 2 March had stayed a Melur’s magisterial court proceeding on the elderly couple’s paternity claim over Dhanush.
Justice G Chockalingam had stayed the Melur’s court proceedings, launched on a claim of an elderly couple – Kathiresan and his wife Meenakshi, on a petition by Dhanush, son-in-law of superstar Rajinikanth.
While staying proceedings in the Melur’s magisterial court, Justice Chockalingam, referring to the couple’s plea for a DNA test, had wondered as to why their lawyer failed to file a miscellaneous petition for it for such a long time after moving the Melur court.
They had claimed Dhanush was their third son and had also sought a monthly maintenance of Rs 65,000 saying that they were in a very poor financial position.
