For more than a decade, Dileep has been entertaining everybody with his comic portrayals. Slowly and steadily, he also has managed to become one of the leading heroes in Malayalam. But, for the past few years now, he had been trying hard to switch to action roles. It has almost become an obsession with him. Unfortunately, the success rate had not been encouraging. If that was not bad enough, the trend has caught up with his other films too. Pachakudhira turned out to be very average.
Chakkarapottan flopped. Inspector Garuda, in spite of having the lucky mascot Kavya Madhavan as the heroine, was an average grosser too. He has now signed up for a film with director Joshi. There are also talks about a film with Shaji Kailash. Now comes the news that he is soon going to work with director Major Ravi in his new film. This is Major Ravi's new film after Keerthichakra. Mumbai is the main shooting location for the film.
