The veteran actor Innocent, who has been hospitalised for over two weeks after his health worsened following cancer-related complications, continues in critical condition at VPS Lakeshore Hospital in Ernakulam. 

The hospital clarified Innocent's current health condition in a bulletin released on Sunday morning. The medical bulletin specified that the actor is acutely ill with major comorbidities. The hospital announcement also noted that the actor's vital signs and other indicators were unfavourable. He is currently under close observation and the support of ECMO. 

Innocent, who debuted in 1972, has acted in over 750 films. A three-time Kerala State Film Award winner, he also served as the Member of Parliament representing the Chalakudy constituency from 2014-19

A highly optimistic person, Innocent is known for dealing with cancer with his trademark humour. He has been battling cancer for several years now, and this is the third time the disease has recurred and infected him. In several instances, the actor has spoken about how cancer keeps revisiting despite multiple failures to beat him. He even published a book titled 'Cancer Wardile Chiri' (Smile in the Cancer Ward), in which he shared his experiences during the time he underwent treatment. The then Kerala government even included excerpts from his memoir in school textbooks. 

The actor also served the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA) as president.
