I am told that some Censor Board members are demanding a bribe to clear the film. Our film ‘Ladies Not Allowed’ has been rejected twice.” She further said, “I am not going to tolerate it. I will not be silent. I will raise my voice.”
Shakeela further said, “I borrowed the money from financiers. to make this adult comedy movie ‘Ladies Not Allowed’. When many movies which belong to this genre have been certified in the past, why is only my film is facing this problem?
