Actress Shakeela back, but to direct clean movies

Shakeela, who was the star of B-grade super hit Malayalam films, is back but says that she is here to direct and not to act in movies. She also clarified that her directorial venture would be a clean movie.

In 1990s and early 2000, she was hugely popular among movie buffs for her sensuous roles in many blockbusters.

Talking about her directorial venture "Neelakurinji", Shakeela  clarified: "Please don't expect the film that I am going to direct same as the films that I acted in. This is about pain of a woman and it is not a glamorous film either."


She was here to participate in the 'muhurat' of her directorial debut "Neelakurinji". The title is inspired by the flower neelakurinji that blooms once in 12 years.

"My film would be one which could be seen by all," Shakeela, 40, told reporters.
She acted in more than 50 films in all southern languages and filled the gap left by Silk Smitha for a few years. "Kinnarathumbikal" was one of her all-time hits.

She hopes to rope in her favourite actor Dileep to do a guest appearance in her directorial debut.
