On Saturday, Mammootty, dressed in typical Kerala dhoti and shirt, accompanied Innocent in an open jeep during the five-minute roadshow in Behanan village in Perambavur.

Former CPM legislator Saju Paul who was coordinating the campaign said: "Politics is strange. In 2014, present Thrissur Lok Sabha BJP candidate and Rajya Sabha member superstar Suresh Gopi campaigned for Innocent. We are leaving nothing to chance as we are determined to ensure that Innocent gets a second term."
