Only a few actors, who are capable of incredible screen personality, can dare to take up parts which go onto becoming memorable. Vidya Balan once took such a chance with a film titled Dirty Picture and reaped incredible benefits of it. The film back then became a roaring success in a time when a film with a leading woman wasn’t such a common phenomenon. Now joining this club is Richa Chadha who is all set to helm the biopic of Shakeela, one of the 90's biggest actresses from Kerala who acted in several adult films in languages spanning Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada.
