Actor Richa Chadha is all set for her upcoming flick Shakeela. To promote the movie, the diva has donned 12 different avatars for different months. Not in the movie but for a calendar. It is first of its kind attempt that a movie calendar was prepared. The calendar is inspired by pulp ’90s movies. Richa poses in a different avatar for every month in posters of movies which are fictional. The biopic is based on the southern adult film actor with the same name who found fame with her low budget films.
The calendar is inspired by films that Shakeela starred in during her time in the movies, it is fictional and Richa recently launched the calendar’s image on her Instagram account. Look at her post here.

Speaking about the calendar, Richa said:
“The idea of the calendar was to create something that was tongue-in-cheek. It’s an homage to pulp films of the 90s that all have seen visuals of, especially posters. These posters have been intricately thought through with the intention of invoking a funny reaction from the audiences. I hope people see the humour in all of this. It’s a fun concept and the calendar is something that works well for the film given its retro feel.”
Director Indrajith said about the calendar:
“This calendar is extremely vibrant and colourful. Richa and the team have put in a great efforts in this calendar. Richa was always my first choice for the film, as it needed a great actor to play Shakeela on screen.”
Here look at the calendar with Richa in 12 different avatars. Each movie on the calendar has been given a fictional name.
It is very interesting to come up with such a calendar for a movie. Let’s see how well will it work. The Shakeela, not a porn star will be released in July this year. What do you think about the calendar?
