If you are a die-hard fan of the much-loved Dileep, then we have some nice piece of information in store for you. According to a report in Times of India, the veteran actor is all set to begin work on his delayed Professor Dinkan. Confirming this, director Ramchandra Babu said that the shoot could begin as early as May.
“Dileep has a few more days of work left for Kammarasambhavam and after that we will have a discussion on when we can begin shooting. Realistically, we are looking at May,” added the director.
Professor Dinkan is touted to be a 3D entertainer and has been scripted by Rafi. The film also has actor Namitha Pramod in a key role.
In case you did not know, 2017 was a difficult year for Dileep. In July, he was arrested in connection with the infamous Malayalam actress assault case. And, not surprisingly, his arrest left everyone in a state of shock. To make matters worse, following his arrest, director Vinayan had insulted him and called him a ‘master manipulator’.
“From my personal experience, I know that Dileep is a master manipulator and Mammootty and Mohanlal have just been puppets in his hands. He rose to so much power that behind the scenes, it was him who was controlling Malayalam cinema’s progress,” director Vinayan had told a leading daily.
However, a few months later, he was granted bail much to the relief of his well-wishers. Around roughly the same time, his Ramleela hit screens amidst several protests and tuned out to be a success. He film featured him in the role of a politician and was directed by newcomer Arun Gopy.
At present, besides Professor Dinkan, he also has Kammarasambhavam in his kitty. In it, he will be seen in a dashing and impressive new avatar.
