If the leaves are nice and healthy, I would leave them alone. The leaves are the food-manufacturing parts of the plant, and care should be taken not to remove these functional leaves. It could also open up the plant to pests or disease. If you have older or browning leaves, these can be removed without any harm to the plant. You can always move the leaves around some to allow for more light but the plant will still produce just fine as it is.
