KOCHI:  Popular Malayalam actor Innocent  passes away. He was 75 years old. He died tonight at a private hospital in Kochi due to cancer related health problems.

The star's health condition continued to deteriorate for the past few days. Innocent, who has been treated for cancer in the past, has made a strong comeback after overcoming the disease.

Actor Innocent is known as a person who faced cancer with his will power. He has also written books including Cancer Wardile Chiri (Laughter in the Cancer Ward).

The 75-year-old veteran comedian and character actor was diagnosed with cancer some years ago and according to sources, Innocent had suffered a fall after which his health deteriorated.

Covid also has taken a heavy toll on him after he tested positive for it thrice in the past three years. Innocent served as the president of the Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) for several years.

The veteran 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 Trissur slang. In a career spanning over four decades, he has acted in around 750 films.

His popularity was huge and the 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 P.C. Chacko. In 1979, he was elected as the Municipal Councilor of Iringalakuda.

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 recovering.

The actor started with the movie 'Nrithashala' and became notable for his comedic roles and later played villainous roles in films like 'Mazhavilkavadi', 'Ponmutayidunna Tharav' and 'Gana Mela'. Innocent won many awards including three Kerala State Film Awards.
