Dileep, who is currently out on conditional bail in the actress attack case, was reinstated as the president of the Film Exhibitors United Organisation of Kerala (FEUOK) on Wednesday but the actor has decided not to take up any such roles for now.
Dileep has conveyed his decision to the members of FEUOK via a letter. However, the actor has promised to support the organisation, which he helped in setting up when Mollywood was going through a bad phase last year.
Dileep was reinstated as the FEUOK chief, just a day after his release on bail on Tuesday. However, there is no news on whether the actor will be reinstated by AMMA just yet.
Soon after Dileep was arrested on July 10, the actor was expelled from FEUOK and producer Antony Perumbavoor, who was its vice-president, took over the post.
The executive members of the organisation announced on Wednesday that they are bringing back Dileep as its head.
The actor, who is currently out on conditional bail, has conveyed his decision to the members of the association via a letter. Since Dileep has not accepted the offer, Antony will continue as its president.
In an interview with The New Indian Express, Antony Perumbavoor said, “We have not ousted him from the organisation. I was handed over the charge of the president of the new association since Dileep was not in a position to undertake the role. Now Dileep is back, and that is why we have decided to reinstate him as president.”
Dileep was also expelled from the treasurer post of AMMA soon after his arrest. Recently, actor-turned-MLA KB Ganesh Kumar stated that the executive members of the association had decided this, without following its rules and regulations. He also alleged that Mammootty and others expelled the actor due to the pressure from Prithviraj Sukumaran and to satisfy the media.
