The 75-year-old actor and comedian was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago and several reports suggested that Innocent suffered a fall after which his health deteriorated. Even Covid took a heavy toll on him after he tested positive for it thrice in the past three years. 

For many years, Innocent served as the president of the Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA). The veteran actor began his film career as a producer and turned to acting and easily won the hearts of all film buffs through his comedy and his Trissur slang. 

In a career spanning across four decades, Innocent has acted in approximately 750 films and his popularity was on the rise after the Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI-M) fielded him as an independent candidate in the 2014 Lok Sabha election from Chalakudy, where he trounced Congressman PC.Chacko. 

However, he lost to Congress leader Benny Behanan while defending his seat in 2019. 

In a rather shocking turn of events, Innocent's cancer relapsed in 2020 and he acted in a few films after recovering.
