They’re each representing a different month in this one heck of a unique calendar that the makers of the Shakeela biopic movie have presented to the world. 2019 got even more interesting as the 12 months of the year will now have a quirky visual representation for each month. The Shakeela Calendar 2019 has been designed as a fictional movie poster for each month with hilariously cheeky titles and Richa Chadha in a different look for each, as an ode to the pulp movies of the late 90s, the era in which cheekiest Shakeela herself dominated the screens.
Based on the life of the adult film star of the south film industry, the film helmed by award-winning director Indrajit Lankesh becomes the first film to have a calendar of its own. The calendar comes with a fun hashtag calling it #2019ShakeelaKeNaam and that truly is this case, given the high anticipation surrounding the film so far.
Speaking about the film, Actress Richa Chadha continued saying, “When I first heard the story when Indrajit told me about the script I was amazed to know how cinematic her life is. She was an unapologetic person who never apologised for her choices. She empowered herself and did things in a business which was back then a largely male-dominated business”
Adding to her, director Indrajit Lankesh, said, “This Shakeela Biopic calendar is extremely vibrant and colorful. Actress Richa Chadha and the team have put in great efforts to put this calendar together and it’s extremely colorful and fun. Richa Chadha was always my first choice for the film, as it needed a great actor to play the life of Shakeela on screen and I am very happy with the film and I am waiting for the audiences to see it too”.
