She did rule the roost for many years, providing steady business to cinema halls in times of crisis. She is very well known down south, and it will be interesting to see how it will be received here. The teaser starts with a voiceover describing the power of Shakeela, who was sought after by distributors and exhibitors in the late 1990s and 2000s when film business down South suffered. It was also great to reunite with Pankaj ji (Tripathi),” Richa said in a statement. © IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd
