Richa Chadha launches movie posters for Shakeela


What does “Paapi Pappi”, “Maneater”, “Mard Ko Dard Hoga” and “Chatri Ke Peche Kya Hai” have in common? They’re each representing a different month in this one heck of a unique calendar that the makers of the Shakeela biopic have presented to the world. This year of 2019 got even more interesting as the 12 months of The year will now have a quirky visual representation for each month.

The poster has been designed as a fictional movie poster for each month with hilariously cheeky titles and Richa in a different look for each, as a ode to the pulp movies of the late 90s, the era in which Shakeela herself dominated the screens. Based on the life of the adult film star of the south film industry, the film helmed by award winning director Indrajit Lankesh becomes the first film to have a calendar of its own.

The calendar comes with a fun hashtag calling it #2019ShakeelaKeNaam and that truly is this case, given the high anticipation surrounding the film so far.

The film will be releasing this summer and has been produced by Sammy’s Magic Cinema and Yoddhas Entertainment.
