 Recently in an interview, Indrajit Lankesh had said, “I always wanted to make a movie on Shakeela. I wanted to portray her story, the hardships and rough phase when she was not getting films and was trying for character roles. I met her in 2015 and after meeting, I decided to make a movie on Shakeela.”

 The director says that Shakeela’s life will inspire all the girls who aspire to become actors.  He feels that every woman and girl who wants to be an actor should see her story to know what she went through to become an actor and how her life has been such a compelling rags-to-riches-to-rags story.

Richa Chadda is reprising the role of Shakeela in this biopic. The actress has left no stone unturned in prepping for the film. A few months ago, she met with Shakeela to learn more about her so she could add authenticity to the character when it comes alive on screen.
