‘Wife’ drags Prabhu Deva’s dad Sundaram to court

Actor Prabhu Deva’s father and well-known choreographer Sundaram is in a spot as yesteryear dance master Tara, 62, has petitioned the family court in Chennai alleging he married her in 1970 and even fathered a son.

She wants Rs 5-crore alimony and a monthly maintenance allowance of Rs 75,000.
Ms Tara told reporters at the court the two became close in 1964 and got married in 1970. A son was born a year later. She said she was a busy choreographer in Kollywood for years but was now finding it difficult to find employment due to age.
“Sundaram Master was giving money till sometime back but has now stopped helping. I need money to take care of my son and so I moved the family court,” Ms Tara said, adding that Mr Sundaram was not responding to summons from the court to appear for counseling.
She said Mr Sundaram had properties in several places but was not helping her despite having promised he would take care of her and their son.
Ms Tara alleged Mr Sundaram’s wife picked up a quarrel with her and took away their photograph (Ms Tara and Mr Sundaram’s) sometime back. Her lawyer Sethuraman said Ms Tara’s son Munna, now about 41 years old, did not have a proper job.
Sundaram Master has more than 1,000 films under his belt. He has three sons, including famous choreographer-actor-director Prabhu Deva, choreographer Raju Sundaram and actor Nagendra Prasad.
