One more biopic is getting ready and this time it is on south film industry’s adult film star Shakeela. Interestingly, Shakeela is expected to play a cameo in her biopic, which is being directed by Indrajit Lankesh. The biopic stars Richa Chadha as Shakeela, south India’s bombshell of the 1990s, who continues to work in some odd movies even today.
Before the start of the biopic’s shooting, Richa Chadha is said to have had an interaction with Shakeela in Bengaluru to understand the actress’s nuances. Later, to honour Shakeela’s popularity, Lankesh is believed to have brought in the real Shakeela to play a cameo in the biopic. Later, speaking to the press, Lankesh said he always wanted to make a film on Shakeela as he was impressed with her on-screen and off screen personality.
He then said he wanted to describe her life story, the hardships and rough phase when she was not getting films and was trying for character roles. “I wanted to show the true story behind the superstar Shakeela,” he added.
Stating that Shakeela is an integral part of the making of the biopic, Lankesh said even Richa got to spend some time with her and understand her style of talking and her body language.
