Kochi: The condition of popular Malayalam actor Innocent, currently admitted to a private hospital here, is very critical, stated a medical bulletin issued by the hospital authorities.

He was admitted to a private hospital in Kochi two weeks back due to breathing issues. The 75-year-old veteran comedian and character actor was diagnosed with cancer some years ago.

Innocent has served as the president of the Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) for several years.The actor, whose film career began as a producer, turned to acting and easily walked into the hearts of all film buffs through his comedy and his Thrissur slang.

In a career spanning over four decades, he has acted in over 500 films. Seeing his popularity, Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI-M) fielded him as an independent candidate in the 2014 Lok Sabha election from Chalakudy, where he trounced Congressman PC Chacko.

However, he lost to Congress leader Benny Behanan while defending his seat in 2019. Innocent's cancer relapsed in 2020 and he acted in a few films after recovery.
