Malayalam actors Dileep and Kavya Madhavan are blessed with a baby girl. Kavya gave birth to the newborn on Friday early morning at 4:45 am at a Kochi hospital. Both the child and the mother are doing well.
This is the couple's first child, while Dileep has a daughter Meenakshi with his first wife, actress Manju Warrier. Dileep married Kavya in 2016. Dileep’s daughter Meenakshi from the previous marriage is currently living with the actor. Kavya and her first husband Nishal Chandra parted ways in 2011.
A few weeks ago, we have seen how the family members organised a baby shower for the actress on her 35th birthday. Baby shower along with birthday celebration took place in Kochi and was attended by close friends and family members.
Since the last one-and-a-half years, Dileep has been in news for all the wrong reasons, after being a co-accused in the kidnapping case of an actress, who had been raped in a car. He also resigned from the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes.
Mollywood's misogyny came to light when Dileep was accepted back into the fold at the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA). Following that four actresses, including the survivor, had resigned from AMMA after Dileep came back.
Dileep has now resigned from AMMA, after a call from actor Mohanlal, who is AMMA’s president. In a press conference, Mohanlal said, "He readily gave it and his resignation was accepted."
He also talked about Dileep and his resignation, "The big problem when I took charge was revolving around Dileep. WCC told us that we should have a clear stand with this. When WCC (Women in Cinema Collective) came to talk to us, we asked them for some time. We wanted time to call the General Body, but then the situation in Kerala changed. They had also spoken to us about taking back the members who resigned, we did not know how to deal with it."
"Many media houses, not in Malayalam, but in English, Tamil, etc, made me the face of this. It hurt me," Mohanlal added.
After spending 85 days in jail in connection with the Kochi actress assault case, Dileep signed many movies.
