It’s not straightforward to make biopics specially when you are creating a film on an adult star. Filmmaker Indrajit Lankesh’s forthcoming directorial ‘Shakeela’ is based on the lifetime of the intercourse siren Shakeela who ruled the South Indian film sector in the 90s. Flexible actress Richa Chadha will be participating in Shakeela in this biopic.
In an exclusive job interview with Bollywood Bubble, Indrajit exposed if ‘Shakeela’ faced any challenge with the Censor Board offered the subject matter make any difference of his movie. The director also opened up about his largest takeaway from this movie.
‘Shakeela’ is a incredibly special film for Indrajit Lankesh for apparent causes and he insists that the viewers has a large amount to study from Shakeela’s rags to riches and then back to rags story.
Contemplating ‘Shakeela’ chronicles the journey of an grownup star, I questioned Indrajit if his film faced any problems with the Censor Board to which he replied, “No, not at all. In reality, they hugged me they liked me. They all claimed it is an astounding movie. 10 users of the Censor Board seen my film and curiously six of them have been girls and a whole lot of them loved it. They didn’t suggest a single minimize. Post-screening they even had a dialogue with me for 50 percent an hour. Most of these users ended up from Mumbai and some of the females could not make out its Richa Chadha in the film mainly because she has bought into her character of Shakeela so much. So that was a real compliment for me.”
When asked what was his biggest takeaway from this project, Lankesh shared, “I don’t want any one specifically a female to go by way of what Shakeela did in this male-dominated modern society. We really should get started producing additional girls-centric movies and stories for girls. Nobody should knowledge what Shakeela experienced. Its a very hypocritical culture we live in. We view her films, we appreciate her movies but we however say that she is an adult star and there’s a taboo about it. That is the most significant takeaway for me and I am confident and hope the viewers will also sense it.”
