State award winning actor Vinayakan, who was nominated for the National Awards for his terrific performance in Kammatipaadam, has shared his views on Dileep's arrest.
The Malayalam film industry went into denial mode as Dileep was questioned by the police for his alleged role in the Malayalam actor abduction and sexual assault case which shook Kerala in February this year.
According to a Manorama report, Vinayakan said that the arrest is not a foolish move by the police. "I have many things to reveal but I am waiting for the court procedure to be completed," he allegedly said.
The Times of India also quoted the actor putting in a word of caution, noting that the police had committed mistakes earlier, too, and that in this case as well, one had to wait and see what happens in court.
Vinayakan further said that the Malayalam film industry was going through a bad phase but that it would evolve from here on.
The actor was speaking at an event in Alappuzha, where he had gone to unveil the logo of the 65th Nehru Trophy Boat Race.
Though a few voices from the Malayalam film industry have acknowledged their support for the police investigation, most have either chosen to remain silent or wax eloquent about Dileep's "goodness".
Dileep's bail plea was rejected by the Angamaly Judicial Magistrate and the Kerala HC is yet to announce its decision.
