We had reported earlier that Richa Chadha had been roped in to play the titular role in a biopic on Shakeela, to be directed by Indrajit Lankesh. The film will delve into the life of the actor, who ruled the Southern film industry for over two decades.

Now, its learnt that Richa has begun shooting for the film in a small town in Karnataka called Tirthahalli. Dressed in a traditional Kerala saree called Kasavu Pattu, Richa Chadha's first look as Shakeela has been released.

When asked about the first look, the actor said, "The story traces the journey of Shakeela from her younger days to her becoming a popular actor. With time, her looks changed and getting them perfectly on screen was challenging. Also for me as an actor, it's gratifying that I get to grow with the real character on celluloid. Shakeela is still a legend, and we wish to do complete justice to her."
