Dileep told that I have never expected about this award. It is like an unexpected thunder. Dileep was at the shooting set of Viji Thampi’s film ‘Nadodimanan’ when the award was announced by Jury chairman Baghyaraj and Minister Ganesh Kumar. He also added that I have expected award for the films ‘Chanthupottu’ and Kunjikoonan. But it was not happened on that time. But this time, I have not even thought about the award.
