Lekha was supposed to pair with Simbhu in the film Kettavan. She also acted in the first schedule but she was removed from the film because her acting was not satisfactory.
In between this film also shelved. After this, she made her debut as heroine in the Tamil film Jayamkondan. She also acted in the Telugu film Vedam.
This film is being remade in Tamil with the title Vaanam. Simbhu is doing the lead role. Lekha was offered the same role she did in the Telugu version. But it seems she has refused this role because was responsible for removing her from Kettavan.
When asked Lekha about this, she said,” People are telling that I refused this role because I have to act with Simbhu. It is not like that. I don’t like to do the same role again and again. Next I will be donning the role of Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter in the Hindi film titled Power. I am pairing with Ajay Devgan in this film.”
