Kochi: Amid the recent developments in the case of an actress having been abducted and sexually assaulted, actor Dileep has said in a Facebook post that he was ready to undergo a lie detection test to prove his innocence.
On Monday, Dileep repeated his assertions that a group of people had been attempting deliberately to malign his image through social media and a few ‘yellow online websites’. His post begins with a note thanking his actor colleagues Salim Kumar and Aju Varghese, who supported him when his name was being dragged into the case again.
“I have not done any harm to anyone knowingly. And now for the past few months, a group of people is attempting to malign my image. As of now, this conspiracy is being propagated by a few prominent television channels through their late night debates. Their intention is only one thing, which is to alienate my fans from me. Their attempt is also to ensure that my upcoming movies ‘Ramaleela’ and other films fail at the box office. Their sole aim is to eliminate me from the film fraternity,” Dileep wrote.
Coming out against those “bloodthirsty persons and a section of the media”, Dileep reiterated that he was innocent and had no involvement in the case in any way.
“As Salimkumar said, I am ready to undergo brain mapping, narco analysis or lie-detection tests. This is not to portray any others as accused but only to prove my innocence,” he wrote.
He ended the post by conveying Eid greetings to all.
Earlier, actor Salim Kumar in a Facebook post had said that the recent developments in the case of the actress’ abduction were part of a script written to destroy Dileep’s personal life.
