Bollywood actress Richa Chadha has been roped in to play the titular role of Shakeela in the Shakeela biopic directed by Indrajit Lankesh. The upcoming will delve into the life of superstar Shakeela who ruled the Southern film industry for over 2 decades.
The B-Town lady has begun shooting for the film in a small town in Karnataka called Tirthahalli. Dressed in a traditional Kerala saree called Kasavu Pattu, check out Richa Chadha’s first look as Shakeela.
“The challenge for the look of the film but also a good one is that the story traces the journey of Shakeela’s younger days to her becoming a popular figure. Thus the looks span over years and years and with each passing time her look changed and thus to show that is challenging but also for me as an actor its gratifying that I get to grow with the real character on celluloid. Shakeela is still a legend and we wish to do complete justice to her when the film is ready”, said Richa
On the work end, Richa was earlier in news for ‘Love Sonia‘.
Seems to be soothing!
