Ranjith had been on the wait to finalize a cast for his upcoming movie ‘Leela’, which is all about the love affair between a mahout and an orphan girl. Playing the titular role of Leela is actress Parvathy Nambiar, who was seen in ‘Ezhu Sundraa Rathrikal’. Ranjith finalised her after watching her stage performance.
A few other actresses including Rima Kallingal, Karthika, Ann Augustine et al were considered for the role earlier. The controversial nature of the role had made some of them opt out. Biju Menon is doing the male lead in the movie. The role was previously offered to Mohanlal, Mammootty and Shankar Ramakrishnan, all of whom opted out due to various reasons. The movie is based on a story of the same title by Unni R. Unni is scripting the movie.
