In a statement, director Indrajit Lankesh said:
“Shakeela is truly a labour of love and commitment to show Shakeela’s story is iconic in so many ways. Her story is almost folklore today, but the truth is that so much happened to her while she soared to success from nothing and then came back to nothing again. I’m happy that our producers are releasing the film so widely, giving me the confidence to know that it’s a film that will appeal to the larger masses. To release in so many languages was important because that was the power of Shakeela.”
The movie also casts Ester Noronha, Rajeev Pillai & Sheeva Rana in pivotal roles. The movie has been produced by Sammy Nanwani & is set release in theatres on December 25, 2020.
