Known as bombshell lady, soft-porn actress Shakeela’s films had literally shaken south India in the 90s and even made big stars like Mammotty and Mohan Lal postpone their films when her releases are around. But in 2001, she announced a retirement from ‘A’ rated movies and entered into mainstream cinema.

Giving full credits to Telugu director Teja who introduced her to mainstream movies by roping her in as a lecturer in 2002’s runaway hit ‘Jayam’, that marked debut of Nitin and Sada, our bombshell says that Teja is like her big brother. “I should say hatsoff to him. He showed me a new way for my life and from last 12 years I’ve been acting in mainstream movies due to his initial offer. He is like my big brother,” asserts Shakeela.

After making a big name in adult movies, Shakeela lost crores of her earnings as her own sister and brother managed to cheat her. She is writing all this into an autobiography now, which she wants to be made as a silver screen bonanza.
