"The film is the story of Shakeela, one of the most famous actors from Malayalam cinema from the 90s who rose to a spectacular amount of fame. Her fans were spread across Asia and she earned fanfare as a woman which back then was unheard of.

It should be noted that Shakeela made her debut in Silk Smitha's film Play Girls. Meanwhile, Shakeela is making her comeback with the horror film Seelavathi.
