His real name was Kalaiselvan and he did his schooling up to standard X at R C Higher Secondary School and Government Boys Higher Secondary School in Melur. After that he was admitted for standard XI in a private school in Tiruppathur in Sivaganga district. he escaped from the school within a month to Chennai to pursue a career in acting. He also changed his name to Dhanush.
But he discontinued his education and went to work in the film industry, in which he joined hands with Kasthuri Raja. Despite various attempts, the couple could not meet the national-award winning actor, said the petitioners.
