This generation doesn’t know much about Shakeela, but the youth of 90’s and early 2000’s know the stardom she had enjoyed. She set the box-office on fire in Kerala with her adult films. At one point in time, she challenged the supremacy of Kerala's superstars Mammootty and Mohanlal. Later she acted in Telugu films.
Shakeela has now completed her 250th movie titled Seelavathi. The film has completed its shoot and is gearing up for release but has landed in censor problems.
Regional censor board objected over the title and asked the director Sri Raam Dasari and producers to come up with another title. Seelavathi means chaste woman. What is wrong in this title asks Shakeela.
The film is said to be a supernatural thriller. She requests censor board to watch the film in entirety and take a decision. Since she has released trailer and did promotions with this title, it is unfair to ask to change the title at this moment, Shakeela said.
