If reports are to be believed, actor Biju Menon will be replacing Mammootty in the upcoming Ranjith movie ‘Leela’. Biju will be giving life to ‘Kuttiyappan’, the central character in the movie. Earlier Mohanlal was approached to do the role Kuttiyappan but he rejected the offer due to unknown reasons. Shankar Ramakrishnan was also offered the role of Kuttiyappan. Lastly, it came to Mammootty.

‘Leela’ is a highly awaited project of director Ranjith. Interestingly, the story of the movie is adapted from the short story ‘Leela’ of Unni R. Unni R himself will be writing the screenplay for the movie. ‘Leela’ tells the story of the relationship between a girl Leela and mahout Kuttiyappan. Ann Augustine was earlier named as the female lead. Then it was offered to Karthika Nair and later came to Rima Kallingal. Till now the female lead is not confirmed.

Biju Menon is now having good time to be part of good projects. His latest releases Vellimoonga, Madhuranaranga and Kunjiramayanam were well received in the theatres. His upcoming movie is ‘Anarkali’. Ranjith’s last movie was ‘Loham’ with Mohanlal, which had mixed reviews in the theatres.
