Shakeela’s Life to be Made into Biopic!

Richa Chadda will play the lead!

First, it was Vidya Balan playing the role of the 80’s siren Silk Smitha in ‘Dirty Picture’ which went onto become immensely popular and a huge blockbuster. Now it is Richa Chadda’s turn to play Shakeela in a biopic to be directed by Indrajit Lankesh of Bollywood.

Shakeela, one of the 90s biggest actresses from Kerala who acted in several adult films in languages spanning Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada has been dubbed in Japanese and Chinese as well. Shakeela is a household name for sexuality and explicit acting besides some of the cameos she has done in Boss Engira Baskaran, Dhool etc. Following the footsteps of Silk Smitha, Shakeela entered the film fraternity at the young age of 19 and soon carved a niche for herself in spite of the spoofs and jokes that are carried in her name. This movie is based on her book which talks about, men, family, film industry and the relationships she has come across in the 2 decades of her film career with many notable VIPs in the list.
