For the first time in about seven months, Malayalam movie star Dileep has shared a post with his fans on his Facebook page. He unveiled the first look of his upcoming film Kammara Sambhavam while wishing his fans a happy new year. The actor sporting an army uniform coupled with thick beard promises an intense action thriller.
While sharing the post, Dileep said he has played “a unique character” in Kammara Sambhavam and thanked his fans for standing by him during his trying times. Equating his fans to God, he sought their continued love and support for him. The previous update on Facebook page was posted on July 10, last year, the same day he was arrested by the cops for his alleged connection with the abduction and sexual assault of a woman actor.
Dileep also took a potshot at his detractors saying he was dedicating the first look poster of his upcoming film to them. “Dedicated to those who cooked up facts and to those who twisted and mutilated facts,” he wrote on his Facebook wall.
