The Madurai bench of the Madras High Court, on 21 April, dismissed the case filed by an elderly couple from Melur who claimed that actor Dhanush was their son.

The couple, R Kathiresan (65) and K Meenakshi (53), had appealed for a DNA test, alleging that the actor was their eldest son, Kalaichelvan. They claimed he was born to them in 1985 at the Rajaji Hospital in Madurai and had run away when he was a student of Class 11.

The judge quashed the couple’s appeal on the grounds of insufficient evidence. The couple sent a legal notice to actor Dhanush on 4 October 2016, demanding that he provide them maintenance of Rs 65,000 per month. In November, they filed a case in the Melur court. The case was dismissed.

The sudden release of the bio-pic Ek Thi Rani Aisi Bhi, chronicling the life and times of Vijaya Raje Scindia - the Rajmata Of Gwalior, has come as a complete surprise to the movie trade as well as to Hema Malini fans. Produced by Zee Classic and directed by Gul Bahar Singh, the film was completed in 2010. However, it was delayed for various reasons, including lack of funds. In Ek Thi Rani Aisi Bhi Hema plays a woman in search of an identity beyond lineage.

Forget fans, it came as complete surprise to me also, but I am glad  it’s finally been released.
