Pankaj Tripathi dons bell-bottoms, colourful shirts as larger-than-life actor, producer in Shakeela biopic
Shakeela is a directorial venture by Indrajit Lankesh delves into the life of the glamorous actress, who has worked in Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada language films for over twenty years
In the film, the Newton actor will not just be seen rocking the outfits, he will portray a boisterous hero who is overconfident, talented and knows he will get the girl.
When Pankaj went for a costume trial for the movie, he says he was in two minds and questioned himself if he will be able to carry such a colourful dress.
"My character was supposed to behave larger than life like a south Indian commercial hero. I was supposed to dance with the heroine. I was scared on the first day of the shoot.
"Normally I don't see the monitor after giving the shots, but later when I checked one of the scenes, I was surprised to see how I managed to pull these shots dancing with the heroine in a swimming pool."
For Pankaj, it was fun playing the part.
"I always wanted to dance, and do some action in a film... The audience will be surprised to see me in the role, just the way I am surprised to see myself in this role."
Shakeela is a directorial venture by Indrajit Lankesh and stars Richa Chadha in the titular role.
