Leela, the upcoming Ranjith movie, is the new talk in the town. Expectations are riding high on Leela, as it is adapted from the popular short story of the same name, written by Unni R.

In a recent interview, writer Unni R stated that the Biju Menon starrer is not an offbeat movie; but a feel-good entertainer. The scenarist revealed that the movie plot is different from the short story.

The short story plot is a little more serious while the movie is a fun-filled entertainer. Unni R assures that Kuttiyappan will be a turning point in the lead actor Biju Menon's acting career.

He also states that Leela will be another masterpiece by Ranjith, who is undoubtedly one of the most brilliant film-makers of the industry. In short, Leela is not an art film; but a commercial entertainer.

The project, which will be released under the title Leela-The Never Ending Play, was initially offered to Mammootty and Mohanlal. But both the actors turned down the offer due to personal reasons. 

Parvathy Nambiar essays the title role Leela in the movie, which is produced by Ranjith himself, under the banner Capitol Films. The movie is expected to hit the theatres by the end of April.
