Speaking about her look in the movie Richa said, “The challenge for the look of the film but also a good one is that the story traces the journey of Shakeela’s younger days to her becoming a popular figure.

“So, the looks span over years and years and with each passing time her look changed. To show that is challenging but also for me as an actor, it’s gratifying that I get to grow with the real character on celluloid. Shakeela is still a legend and we wish to do complete justice to her when the film is ready.”

The shoot for the film is already underway in Tirthahalli, Karnataka.
