Indrajith Lankesh pins hopes on Shakeela biopic
The biopic stars Richa Chadda in the titular role, with Pankaj Tripathi and Esther Noronha as part of the cast
After launching Deepika Padukone and Ileana D’Cruz in Kannada, Indrajith Lankesh, who has completed shooting the talkie portions of his debut Hindi project, Shakeela, is all set to present Richa Chadda in his debut Hindi project.
The biopic stars Richa in the titular role, with Pankaj Tripathi and Esther Noronha also part of the cast. Confident about the way it is shaping up, Indrajit says, "This film will be the high point in my career."
The director who celebrates his birthday tomorrow is planning to present his father's (P Lankesh) book to the children of Sidganga Mutt. "What's the point in celebrating existence otherwise? I believe in sharing it with others," he says.
At present, he is only left with the shooting of the song sequences for his film. Music directors Meet Bros and Veer Samarath have composed the songs for Shakeela.
