Richa Chadha’s forthcoming venture titled Shakeela is one of the most awaited biopics of this year. Shakeela is based on the life of the Southern actress of the same name.
In today’s era, celebrity calendars are a great innovation and are kind of an interesting to watch out. But it would be the first time a film will have a dedicated calendar.
Richa Chadha will be posing in posters inspired by the cheesiest, quirkiest films of the decade of the 90s which would be equally hilarious and yet are induced with a great deal of thought as a homage to the posters of the time.
Each month in the calendar has Richa posing in a new avatar as a star of a fictional movie and elements thereafter. The launch of the calendar will be in the coming week.
The calendar will also have a warning that the images bear no resemblance to any real-life inspired people or any other actual films, they’re simply to be taken in light humour and enjoy the kitschy world of Shakeela from the late 90s.

The lead actress of the film, Richa Chadha spoke about it and said, “Even though our film is currently in post-production, we wanted to do something special ahead of the film’s release. The team thought we should pay this homage to her and the films that she has been a part of. It’s quirky and tongue in cheek, so we are aware many people may not understand it. But there’s an underbelly to cinema and often is crazy and colourful. I hope people find the humour we did in this calendar and enjoy the world of these 90s pulp films!”
Shakeela is set to release sometime early in 2019 and the film will focus on the actress’ rise to stardom and her popularity in Malayalam, Telugu, and Tamil cinema. It stars Rajeev Pillai and Pankaj Tripathi.
