Richa Chadha and Pankaj Tripathi starrer – Shakeela directed by Lankesh’s trailer was released a few days ago. The film shows the real-life shocking story of one of the most hated and loved adult film star that shook the industry in the late 90s and early 2000s.
The unlikely tale of a woman driven by circumstances of going from rags to riches to drags, tells the story of the real-life beyond the reel personality people have been familiar with. Such was the popularity of the actor, that her films were released in several languages including Sinhalese and Chinese; she gave the then superstars of the south a predominantly male-dominated industry a tough competition with beliefs mentioning that exhibitors would think twice to release any film in front of a Shakeela film!
The makers today shared the new poster of the film featuring Pankaj Tripathi and Richa Chadha. Have a look at it here:
All set to releases in close to 1000 screens this Friday in across 5 languages.
The film is presented and produced by Sammys Magic Cinema Motion Picture Production and distributed by UFO. ‘Shakeela‘ will hit theatres on December 25.
