Not just that, basis their petition, Melur's Judicial Magistrate Court has summoned the actor, asking him to make an appearance before the court.

Apparently, the couple has produced a birth certificate along with childhood photographs of the actor as evidence to validate their claim.

In a report in Free Press Journal, the couple was quoted saying:

We named him Kalaichelvan and enrolled him in a school in Melur. When he completed class X, we got him admitted in class XI in a school in Sivaganga district. But he dropped out and moved to Chennai and changed his name to Dhanush K Raja and entered the world of cinema.

The couple is now asking for a monthly maintenance amount of ₹65,000 from the actor. Or should we say their son?

As a wise man once said, this happens only in India! Over to you, Dhanush!
