by , Wednesday, March 07, 2018

Richa Chadha has proven what a great actress she is, every now and then but this time she will be seen in a new avatar. A biopic based on the life of Malayalam actress Shakeela is in the making, and it will have Richa Chadha playing the sensational actress.

Shakeela ruled the Malayalam adult industry in the 90s!

Helmed by Indrajith Lankesh, the brother of journalist Gauri Lankesh, who was murdered a few months back. Shakeela is one of the prominent figures in the south, who ruled the Malayalam adult film industry in the 90s. Apart from the B grade films, the actress has also acted in various Tamil movies with leading stars like Vijay and Arya.

"The film is the story of Shakeela, one of the most famous actors from Malayalam cinema from the 90s who rose to a spectacular amount of fame. Her fans were spread across Asia and she earned fanfare as a woman which back then was unheard of. The film's script was exciting and is a great story to tell which will make for a great watch for the audience. The preparations will begin soon and the film should be going on floors in April or May," Richa's spokesperson said.

Earlier, Dirty Picture starring Vidya Balan was loosely based on the life of Silk Smitha, another iconic actress in the south. The film turned out to be a huge hit and also got three National Awards.

It should be noted that Shakeela made her debut in Silk Smitha's film Play Girls. Meanwhile, Shakeela is making her comeback with the horror film Seelavathi.
