Ranjith will start shooting Leela, based on Unni R's story. He is currently giving the final shape to the film's script. But what is interesting about the project is its cast.
The film was originally announced with Mohanlal playing the lead, but it didn't happen. Later Shankar Ramakrishnan was announced as the hero, to play the role of the character called Kuttiyappan.
Ann Augustine was to play the female lead then. Now the male lead is being played by Mammootty and Prithviraj is also part of the main cast.
