After her latest film, 'Love Sonia', Richa Chadha is all set for her upcoming film 'Shakeela'. The actress recently shared the first poster of the film where she was seen covered in gold jewellery while standing against a wall written with abuses and various comments 'Shakeela' was given despite her success. In the picture, Chadha looked quite stunning as she donned a fearless and bold look. She further shared the picture with "Bold is gold"
She was donned in a complete South Indian style with gold on her body. Now, an interesting part of the image which the makers have just revealed is that the image actually was inspired by a classic image not of Shakeela but that of southern actress Silk Smitha who starred in several erotic films before Shakeela gained popularity. And there’s a special reason behind it. The poster of Shakeela Biopic is inspired by a film of Smitha, titled Miss Pamela.
In the poster, Silk is seen posing in only gold jewellery. According to the makers of the film, the real reason for the inspiration was that they wanted to pay homage to the late Silk Smitha, who had a very untimely tragic demise, which led to the popularity of Shakeela.
This is the second time the life of an adult film actor from South is being showcased on the big screen. Earlier, Vidya Balan had stepped into the shoes of Silk Smitha for ‘The Dirty Picture’ which was a big success on the box office. Richa would definitely want to replicate that when the film hits the screens next year.
