Reports have emerged that Richa Chaddha will be playing the role of Shakeela, the famous adult actress of the South Indian film industry, particularly Malayalam adult films. Shakeela famously replaced Silk Smitha and was always regarded as her fierce competitor on-screen.
She wrote an autobiography titled Shakeela Athmakatha in 2013, in which she had revealed all the trauma and pain she went through in the adult film industry. The film is supposedly based on that book. The Richa Chadda starrer will reportedly revolve around Shakeela’s rise to fame during the 90s. Shakeela gained popularity for starring in adult films made in the South.
About the upcoming biopic, a source close to Richa Chadha said, “The film’s script is exciting and the story will make for a great watch for the audience.” The Indrajit Lankesh-directorial will go on the floors this April and is slated for release early next year.
Now this sounds like something to look forward to, doesn’t it?
