The makers of Shakeela Biopic have come up with the release of another new poster of the movie. Actor of the movie, Richa Chadha, is seen immersed in a glass of alcohol, looking bold and hot in the frame. Further, the poster reads ‘Is saal ka jaam, Shakeela ke naam’ giving a quick insight into the real-life story of the adult film actress of the south.
Check out the poster here:
As the director of the movie, Indrajit Lankesh has tried to portray the off-screen life of the adult actress of the 90s. The film aims to showcase the true life events beyond the image that the actress had on-screen. Previously, the makers released the first poster of the movie where Veere Di Wedding actor, Richa, is seen dressed only in gold jewellery. Behind her, on a wall, are the written negative remarks for the actress which silently aim towards the hate that she went through in her acting career.
After the first poster, the new poster of the movie has recently been released and Richa has shared the same on her Instagram handle. The new poster clearly imitates the style of the posters of the movies back in the 90s.
When director Indrajit Lankesh was asked about the movie, he said, “I always wanted to make a film on Shakeela, I was immensely impressed with her onscreen and offscreen personality. I wanted to portray her story, the hardships and rough phase when she was not getting films and was trying for character roles. I wanted to show the true story behind the superstar Shakeela. She has been an integral part of the making of this film and she has given us such detailed insights into her life. Even Richa got to spend time with her, understand her style of talking, her body language and such nuances. In fact, when she came on set, she gave us very interesting insights like about our art direction and how her house was and is in real life, such small details which have helped us."
Being produced by Sammy's Magic Cinema and Yoddhas Entertainment, the movie is one of the most anticipated biopics of 2019 and will release in the mid of the year.
