Actor Dileep visited the home of actor and mimicry artist Abi whose sudden demise had send shock waves across the Malayalam film fraternity. The actor was in Dubai for inaugurating his restaurant 'Dhe Puttu' when the sad news of his dear friend reached him.
Dileep struggled hard to hold back his tears while trying to console Abi's family members at the late actor's home in Muvattuppuzha.
Abi's son and upcoming actor Shane Nigam and other close relatives were present at the house when Dileep reached there. The grieving family is yet to recover from the shock. Shane remained silent even when Dileep tried to console him with his soothing words.
Abi, Dileep and Nadhirsha had been close friends since their early days as mimicry artists and the trio was a winning combination in the 90's, especially with their audio cassette 'De Maveli Kombathu' becoming a super hit in Kerala. Later, Dileep went on to star in movies while Nadhirsha turned to direction.
Abi was senior to both Dileep and Nadhirsha when it came to experience in mimicry. The latter were members of Abi's troupe. After Kalabhavan's hit pair Sidhique and Lal, it was Abi, Dileep and Nadhirsha who ruled stages across Kerala leaving a trail of laugh riots and genuine humor.
