Malayalam actor Dileep has been arrested in the assault of an actress and his producers are now in jeopardy. The actor is working in three films now and it’s said that Rs 60 crore is at stake on these films.
Right now, he is shooting for ‘Kammarasambhavam’, directed by debutant Ratheesh Ambatt and produced by Gokulam Gopalan under the banner of Sree Gokulam Films. The movie is being made on a budget of Rs 20 crore.
Debutant Arun Gopy’s ‘Ramaleela’ is another film that Dileep is working on. Mulakuppadam Films are said to have put in Rs 15 crore for the movie already and expected to put in more to complete it for release. The actor is also doing ‘Professor Dinkan,’ a 3D movie. This is the directorial debut of cinematographer Ramachandrababu.
The actress’ abduction and assault took place in February this year and Dileep has been arrested now by the Kerala police based on 19 pieces of key evidence. If he is convicted of the crime, then the producers of these films are set to face huge losses. Actor Nadishah has also been implicated in the crime and has been arrested.
