After almost three months, the prison doors opened for Dileep on Friday. Still sporting an unkempt but thicker beard, the actor, who is an accused in the February 17 actress attack case, looked weary as he came out of the jail with folded hands.
But soon, a gaggle of fans overwhelmed his senses with loud cheers and happy tears. Standing at the doorway of his white SUV, the actor waved at his fans and sent flying kisses to them in a filmy style.
He was accompanied by his brother Anoop on his journey back home. The actor received a similar reception at his brother's house at Paravoor Kavala, where he rejoined his family and friends. Dileep was greeted by his mother Sarojam, wife Kavya Madhavan, daughter Meenakshi and other relatives.
His colleagues in the film industry had also arrived to welcome him back. Actor Siddique welcomed him with open arms as he got down from the vehicle. His best buddies Nadhirshah and Dharmajan Bolgatty, and Ramaleela director Arun Gopi were also spotted among the relatives, who had assembled to receive him.
The actor later left for his ancestral home in Aluva. Sources say that Dileep, who has been asked to keep away from media, will spend some quality time with his family for the next few days. Reportedly, Dileep is also planning to celebrate the success of his latest release Ramaleela, by watching a special screening of the movie with his family and the film crew.
