Richa Chadha finally begins shooting for Indrajit Lankesh’s Shakeela next month, which is based on the life of the South adult star. The actor is learning Malayalam to add authencity to the character. It is said that there was some massive lobbying for the part of the adult film star. Buzz is that Huma Qureshi and Swara Bhasker were also in the running, but eventually Richa clinched the deal to play the sex siren.
