Actor Sreenivasan has denied that he is planning to foray into politics during the upcoming legislative assembly election in the state.

"I have already said that I would not visit any house seeking votes. I am not apolitical, but I don't wish to become a part of the present system which is immersed in corruption. The person who encouraged Innocent to contest election has not contacted me. That report is wrong. I haven't talked to anybody, even on phone, about contesting polls," Sreenivasan said, according to Mathrubhumi.

Rumours had it that Sreenivasan might contest as an independent candidate from the Thrippunithura constituency. It was also said that he was approached by some LDF politicians as the party couldn't win in the previous election from the constituency.

Sreenivasan, who was last seen in Mammootty's blockbuster hit film "Pathemari", was well appreciated for portraying the role of superstar's friend Moideen in the Salim Ahamed directorial. He will be next seen in Suresh Gopi starrer "My God", which is expected to hit theatres on 4 December.
