Director Indrajeet Lankesh, who is quite popular in Kannada is making his Bollywood debut with Shakeela and this news is known. The film had to release sometime back itself but due to the pandemic, it couldn’t make it to the theatres.

Starring Richa Chadda and Pankaj Tripathi in the lead roles, the film is going to be released in multiple languages.

As per the latest buzz, the makers of the film are planning to release it on OTT. Going into the details, since the release of the teaser of the Malayalam part, the director has been receiving back to back calls from various digital streaming platforms to bag the rights of the film.

The production house, Magic Cinemas, is waiting for the theatres to reopen, while there have been inquiries for an OTT release too, he adds. “Shakeela being popular across the world, a biopic on her is perfect for streaming platforms. We are yet to take a call on this,” he added.

There has been no update which OTT has been zeroed in for the release of the film, but the director, who has the rights of the film, believes that it can reach audiences and Shakeela fans worldwide.
