After many Malayalam film industry celebrities voiced out their opinions and thoughts about actor Dileep being arrested in the Malayalam actress assault case, dancer-turned-actress- Shobhana has now expressed shock over the recent developments in the case. Shobhana says that she has only known the jovial and pleasant side of Dileep whenever they have worked together. Shobhana said that they first met on the sets of Mohanlal starrer Kaliyoonjal in 1997 and recalled her experience from the meeting.
Shobhana added the Dileep was fun-filled and very soft-spoken personality and entertained everyone with his mimicry talents. The actress also added that everyone who knew Dileep spoke good things about him only. Shobhana, however, feels sad about the state of affairs in the Malayalam film industry at the present moment. “I don’t know about the present condition but it’s saddening to hear that there are rifts in this film industry which had always been like a family,” said Shobhana.
Shobhana also said that there was no bias back then when she was working as an actress. “Malayalam film industry has been perhaps the only industry where people work without any bias. As an actress, we always had the notion that this was the best and secure place to work,” Shobhana added further.
Dileep is currently jailed in the Aluva sub-jail after the Angamaly court extended his judicial custody till August 22nd, 2017 in connection with the Malayalam actress case. The Angamaly court and the Kerala High Court, both, have rejected the bail plea of Dileep earlier and have extended the judicial custody further putting him in a spot of bother.
