Richa to visit Shakeela’s ancestral home


Richa Chadha, who will soon be playing the famed Malayali actress Shakeela in the biopic to be directed by Indrajit Lankesh, is busy preparing for the role. The actress has already met with the southern siren to learn about her life.
“Richa is extremely thorough with her preparation, no matter what the role. She will soon be heading to Shakeela’s ancestral home to understand her family history and dynamics. She will also learn the local dialec there to get the tone of the character right,” a source says.In 2015, Chadda made her debut in a leading role with the drama Masaan, playing a girl caught after indulging in casual sex. The film got a standing ovation when screened at the Cannes film festival.[7] The film has been cited as a milestone in Chadda’s career and through it she is said to have created a niche for herself in the Hindi film industry.Chadda has also worked in theatre, essaying the role of a married Delhi-based woman in Trivial Disasters (2014).
Shakeela herself will be showing Richa around her home and neighbourhood. Meanwhile, the Fukrey actress has started watching some of Shakeela’s biggest hits to study her screen presence and body language. The biopic goes on floors later this month, and she wants to make sure she’s ready by then.
