Actress Kavya Madhavan and Dileep's brother Anoop were on a temple-hopping spree since Dileep was arrested in connection with the Kochi actress assault case.
This was the fifth time that Dileep approached a court seeking bail, ever since his arrest on charges of conspiracy on July 10. The High Court and the Angamaly first class judicial magistrate's court had both rejected his bail plea twice before.
The defence, led by B Raman Pillai, had submitted that Dileep has served 85 days in jail and is now eligible for bail as there are no new developments linking the actor to the investigation. The prosecution, on the other hand, reiterated that the charges against prime accused Pulsar Suni are also applicable to Dileep and that the actor is capable of influencing the investigation adversely if he is let off on bail.
Just a few days after the actor was arrested, Kavya and family went to the Rajarajeswara Temple at Thaliparamba. She also offered a golden pot as offering in the name of Kavya and mother Shyamala, a native of Thaliparamba. She also visited the Sree Krishna Temple at Thrichambaram before returning to their flat at Kannur.
Here are some other temples Kavya, Dileep and his family visited due to their problems in life.
July 4: Dileep and Kavya went to Bhagavathy temple, Kodungallur. They offered 28 gold pendants (swarna thali) before the deity and prayed. Dileep and Kavya also offered Shathru Samhara pushpanjali, a pooja believed to destroy the enemies.
July 7: Dileep visited Narasimha Swami temple, Kodungalloor. According to reports, Kavya and her mother might be interrogated in connection with the attack on the Kochi actress and the conspiracy leading to it. Her online boutique Laksyah in Edapally, Kochi was raided by the police after the main accused in the case Pulsar Suni mentioned Laksyah in a letter he sent to Dileep from prison.
July 19: Dileep's brother Anoop visited 'Judgiyammavan Kovil' (Judge Uncle Temple) near here and offered special puja known as 'vellam kudi vazhipadu'.
Last week, Dileep's most awaiting movie Ramaleela was released after facing many hurdles. The film released on September 28 in 191 theatres in South India, including Bangalore and Chennai has collected around Rs 4.61 crore in the first two days after moviegoers and fans flooded the theatres. All thanks to Dileep's case the movie which is made on a budget of Rs 16 crore has collected above Rs 10.6 crore in just 4 days since released.
Manju Warrier-starrer Udaharanam Sujatha also released on September 28 and clashed with Ramaleela in 69 theatres in Kerala. However, Manju's film collected far lower than Ramaleela.
