Innocent, who was suffering from cancer and was undergoing treatment for the last 11 months, will be facing the camera again. He will be joining the shoots of Priyadarshan's forthcoming movie Geetanjali tomorrow (July 24).
The actor says that he was approached by Priyadarshan and Sathyan Anthikkad to act in Geetanjali. As he has recovered from his illness, Innocent agreed and signed to star in the upcoming Malayalam film. He hopes that he will be able to do full justice to his role in the flick. He thinks working with his fellow-mates will help him to perform well.
Innocent is very happy to make a comeback in a movie, which stars a superstar and that too in a much-hyped movie like Geetanjali. "Mohanlal is a good friend of mine. I am happy that I will be getting some time to spend with him. I am not aware of my role in Geetanjali, but Priyadarshan has told me that I will be playing the role of a step-father in the film", said the actor in an interview for an online portal.
He gives the credit of his comeback to his doctor Gangadharan. Many people came to visit him when he was under treatment. It is their love and their wishes that have helped him to recovery from the illness in a short period.
It was last year when the versatile actor was diagnosed with the disease and the news had shocked his fans as well as the industry. He was treated at a private hospital in Kochi by Dr Gangadharan.
