Boos and cries of 'Welcome to Central Jail' greeted Dileep, the actor accused in the actress assault attack case, when he was taken to the Aluva sub jail on Monday.
Welcome to Central Jail is the name of a 2016 comedy that the actor had starred in.
A crowd had gathered around the Aluva police club after rumours of an arrest spread. The actor was first taken to the magistrate court and then to jail.
Across Kerala, protests broke out in front of Dei Puttu, a chain of restaurants owned by Dileep and his effigy was burned.
On social media, reactions poured in about the irony of the title, Welcome to Central Jail.
The irony of it is that #Dileep's last Onam 2016 release, a low - brow comedy was titled - Welcome To Central Jail !— Sreedhar Pillai (@sri50) July 10, 2017
