The first look poster of Shakeela, a biopic on controversial southern actor Shakeela Khan, starring Richa Chadha, was released today. Directed by Indrajit Lankesh, the film charts Shakeela's rise to fame after the untimely demise of Silk Smitha and the many enemies she made along the way.

Her films were translated into foreign languages such as Chinese, Russian, Nepali and Sinhala. Her popularity at the box-office was hailed as responsible for helping cinema halls survive in B and C towns across South India.
