The second schedule of Professor Dinkan, with Dileep in the lead, will start soon. According to director Ramachandra Babu, the shoot will resume immediately after Dileep wraps up Kammarasambavam.  "We hope to restart by the end of December or January," he said.

However, the team has also decided to change the script. "We have gone for a slight change in the script. As per the new format, Professor  Dinkan will be more of a family subject. The humour will not anymore be slapstick," says the director.

Ramachandra Babu says he has no apprehensions over the fate of the project. Professor Dinkan had to be stalled after Dileep was arrested after being an accused in the actor assault case.

"Nothing has changed, except the fact that we won't be able to release it during Vishu, like we planned initially. Since it is a 3D movie, there is a lot of post-production work, which will take  time. So, the release date will be pushed anyhow," says Ramachandra Babu.

Dileep plays a magician in Professor Dinkan, that also has Namitha Pramod in the lead. The movie, scripted by Rafi, narrates the tale of a magician, who is in a quest for fame.
