Biopic Of Adult Star Shakeela Starring Richa Chadha Will Hit The Screens On Christmas
This Christmas there will be a theatrical release in several languages of the biopic of adult star Shakeela, starring Bollywood actor Richa Chadha in the titular role. Along with a new poster featuring Richa, the makers revealed the film's release date. Shakeela was scheduled to arrive in theatres earlier this year, but because of the coronavirus pandemic, she had to wait it out. Shakeela's latest poster shows Richa Chadha, with a gun in her lap, in a saree. In the context, along with offensive terms relating to her body, religious affiliation and skin colour, there are allusions to her epithet of a box office queen. The film, written and directed by Indrajit Lankesh, aims beyond her erotic image and stardom to explore Shakeela's world.
Lankesh said that Shakeela will expand the view of aspiring actors about the world of movies by calling the movie his passion project. Shakeela is manufactured by Sammy Nanwani and Nanwani Sahil. "I've known Shakeela since I worked with her in 2003. Her tale of rags-to-riches drew my attention. I have done some comprehensive personal interviews with her and have come to know so much about the individual that she is behind the star picture. And I knew that only Richa was capable of nailing the role. The director said in a statement that this film would help young people who aspire to be part of the film industry realise that there is more to the overlying glitz and glamour.
Pankaj Tripathi and Malayalam actor Rajeev Pillai also star in Shakeela. Sammy Nanwani and Sahil Nanwani are producing the film. Shakeela is going to see a box office confrontation with Gal Gadot-starring Wonder Woman in 1984.TAGGED :
