Having been chased out of Kerala, this glamour actress depends on this Vijay film for her comeback.
At one time, she acted with top actors like Mammootty and Mohanlal. She does not get any more comedy roles in Tamil and Telugu either. She does not want to do films that run only morning shows. Now, thanks to Vijay, she’s back in the reckoning.
She has a role in ‘Azhagiya Thamizhmagan’ starring Vijay. She has no earth shaking role in it, it’s just a small role. But she feels that even this one small role in a Vijay film could help erase her old image and set her on a new path.
She has got a nice role in a Malayalam film too. She acts as her own self as actress Shakila in a Mohanlal film. Mohanlal plays an auto driver, who is an ardent fan of Shakila. A scene where he attends a shooting of Shakila has been shot recently. Once this film is released, Shakila hopes she will get more Malayalam film offers.
May her dreams come true!
Shakeela now as a comedienne
Shakeela plays a prominent role in Vijay’s Azhagiya Tamizh Magan. She plays a cameo in the movie.
“It is a hilarious role and I hope to establish myself as a comedy actress in Tamil. I am confident that audience would appreciate me in my new role,” she says.
Azhagiya Thamizh Magan, directed by debutant Bharathan, features Shriya and Namitha as heroines. Music is by A R Rahman.
