Dileep has some high hopes for his daughter as she has just attended this year's National Eligibility cum Entrance Test, which is popular as NEET.  In an interview, Dileep said,  "Meenutty has written 'neatly'. We are praying for her, and I have high hopes.”

He wants her daughter to become a doctor, he said, "Meenakshi won't have initials like Ms or Mrs before her name, rather it will be Dr”.

Talking about his acting career, he said, “I am working in a field from which I can retire anytime."

Meenakshi is the daughter of Dileep and ex-wife Manju Warrier, and one of the popular star kids.
