There are quite a few actors who can successfully pull off a biopic. Vidya Balan played the role of Silk Smitha in The Dirty Picture and made a mark in the industry. This time, actress Richa Chadha has been roped in to play the lead role in a biopic on Shakeela.
The 1990s’ actress from Kerala had acted in several adult films in languages like Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada. The film recounts the life of Shakeela, starting from when she entered the film business at the age of 16 and tracing her journey from there.
Shakeela was a leading presence in cinema halls and her films were dubbed in various languages of India, China, and Nepal. She broke the stardom that was reserved for male actors during that time and became a superstar of the industry.
“The film’s script was exciting and is a great story to tell and the story will make for a great watch for the audience. The preparations will begin soon and the film should be going on floors in end April or May.”
