Of late Innocent has become very selective with regard to roles. He chooses from good scripts before going ahead with the project, but he also gives in to the demands of the dear friends and associates at times. Rest of the times he is on a self proclaimed leave and tends to his family matters in Iringaalakkuda.
This time when he was on his domestic vacation, Dileep requested him to come to Thodupuzha to act in cameraman turned director P Sukumaran's Swantham Lekhakan, for three days. When dileep calls how could he possibly refuse him. So Innocent tagged along in spite having decided to go for shoot only after two months.
Later Innocent got his own humorous version of the whole story, “Dileep has stolen my three days" So the thief and the theft have been disclosed.
Is Dileep who has acted as a thief in movies, a thief in real life a well? Well, the obvious answer would be a flat 'No'. However recently he has behaved in a way that thieves normally do. It is none other than the veteran actor Innocent who has accused Dileep. When Innocent who has often essayed humorous roles makes a sweeping statement like this, we tend to ignore it. But this time for a change, he is right and serious too.
