Actress Richa Chadha has wrapped up the shoot for a biopic on southern adult film actress Shakeela. She is now excited to see the final product.
"SHAKEELA has been a true revelation for me. It really has given me an incredible graph to work with and I'm truly excited to have done this film. Now the excitement grows to see the final product out and let the audiences see the story themselves," Richa said in a statement.
"It has been such a fascinating story that I have lived for the past three months and I'm glad I got to play this part. The shooting experience has been incredible with an amazing team backing it," she added.

Shakeela has been wrapped. It has been a very interesting and fulfilling experience. This is a picture from the first schedule in Thirthahalli. Look at our faces, we look so happy and stress free. I think it's because we were near the forest in nature, shooting by the river, And our cell phones had no network coverage. We lived as a unit far away from the distractions of the city. I also love this image because it has so many of us, taking a leap trying to reach for the sky! . . . . . Magic! . . . Jumping with me - @indrajitlankesh #EstherNoronha #Sunilaggrawal @kunjinout , in doubt @deepakvijayrathod , about to jump @amandeep_khubbar , just plain lazy or confused @ashisbogi @rajeev_govinda_pillai
