CHENNAI: Rejecting the claim by a film financier who sought to make him responsible for a loan availed of by his son-in-law and noted young actor Dhanush’s  family, Tamil superstar Rajinikanth maintained that he was neither a borrower nor a guarantor in the deal.

The petitioner, S Mukanchand Bothra, submitted that in 2012, producer Kasthuriraja, father of actor Dhanush, borrowed Rs 65 lakh from him on the promise that even if he failed to repay the loan amount, Rajinikanth would repay.

As he failed to repay the loan amount, Bothra approached the court to recover the money from Kasthuriraja and to direct Rajinikanth to take appropriate action against him for misusing his name.

“If Kasthuriraja had used my name to obtain money, the financier should have informed me. He cannot be heard to say that he advanced the loan because my name was used, and hold me liable for such loan. I am neither a borrower nor a guarantor. I am not liable in law to pay any money,” the actor said when the petition came up for hearing on Wednesday.
