Popular cine-serial actor Kollam Thulasi remarked that when he was suffering from cancer only Mammootty and Dileep called and consoled him. There are also other instances also of how these two actors showed the milk of kindness towards their fellows in the film field. Jagathy Sreekumar’s daughter said that those who called regularly when he was healthy, are not willing to attend calls nowadays, when they are called. She says that they may be under the impression that he will never recover. But Mammootty and Dileep always make it a point to enquire about the ace actor’s health with the same kind of concern that a brother would have shown.
When legendary actor Sukumari passed away after suffering burns, her body was lying unattended at the Chennai government hospital, since the post mortem could not be done owing to continuous holidays. At the intervention of actor Anoop Menon, Mammootty came to know of this matter. The moment he contacted authorities everything was handled perfectly. Actress KPAC Lalitha has said that Dileep is not just a good actor, but a good human being as well. She said that after the death of her husband Bharathan, it was Dileep who extended financial aid. She also remembered about Dileep’s goodwill in helping actors like Kollam Thulasi, Santhakumari and the family of late actor Cochin Haneefa. In the largely ungrateful world of cinema, Mammootty and Dileep stand out with their magnanimous and benevolent attitude.
