The makers of Richa Chadha starrer ‘Shakeela‘, a movie that is based on the life of the glamorous South actress (who has worked in Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada films), are out with a new poster of the movie. The quirky poster shared by the makers will give you an insight on the late 90s when such posters were quite common.

Check out the latest poster here:

In the poster, we can see Richa Chadha as ‘Shakeela’ immersed in a glass of alcohol. The actress is seen dressed in a lurid yellow and a purple bodysuit.

In November, the makers had unveiled the first look of Richa Chadha as ‘Shakeela’. She was seen embellished in an outfit made of only gold jewelry standing against hate messages inscribed on a wall.

Check out the first look here:

‘Shakeela’ is directed by Indrajit Lankesh and reveals all about the life of the South Star who rocked the South industry with her sensational climb. She had defied the norms in the late nineties of the South Industry. The actress also has a cameo in her biopic.

Speaking about her role in the movie, Richa Chadha had said, “When I was offered this role, I was very apprehensive, but then I met Shakeela. I saw her gutsy attitude, and it became easy. She had forgiven everyone who had done ill to her in her life and she has moved on and is in solace living a minimal life. Even today, when she works, she commands great respect and that’s the story we wish to bring forth.

The biopic, that is produced by Sammy’s Magic Cinema and Yoddhas Entertainment, also features Pankaj Tripathi as an overdramatic actor-producer of the ’90s. The much-awaited movie is slated to hit the theatres sometime in early 2019.
