Dileep is currently acting in Swantham Lekhakan, which also happens to be the comeback movie of the actress Gopika. He also has other projects at hand like Papi Appacha and another with director Kamal which will have Telugu actress Charmi in a key role in the movie. Kamal's movie was to feature Mamta Mohandas with Dileep, but things taken a different turn and Charmi has replaced her in that slot.
Dileep is slowly delving into his capabilities as a complete artiste, rather than as a comedian and Gautham Menon's offer is a indicator in that direction.
Tamil film genius Gautham Menon has cast actor Dileep in one of the three films that he will be directing the next year. AR Rahman will be the music composer for the film. It promises to be an entertainer and the rest of the details are yet to be divulged.
