Critically acclaimed filmmaker Adoor Gopalakrishnan spoke up about the ongoing controversial issue of actor Dileep being arrested in connection with the infamous actress abduction and molestation case. The National Award winning Filmmaker has given a statement defending the actor by saying that he knows Dileep personally and he would never do such a thing. He asked the media to let the court do the proceedings and not be the judge themselves. "Dileep, as a person known to me, is neither an underworld don nor a stone-hearted person. I'm not the authority to pronounce him guilty or innocent. It is the task of the court. At present, the media is punishing him," Adoor said. 

He further said that the media is punishing the actor by being a medium against him in this case. Adoor advised media agencies to have some patience as well as faith in the judicial system of the country. Adoor worked with Dileep and Kavya Madhavan in his film 'Pinneyum' which came out last year. Dileep's popularity has suffered a huge dent due to the ongoing case. The actor's upcoming films may suffer as well as the general public opinion is against the actor as of now. 

The film industry is divided on the matter, some prominent personalities have spoken against the actor, and others have supported him openly. The latest development in the case is that the court has extended the actor's police custody after it was reported that Dileep was not cooperating with the police investigation.
