The cinema world is small. After having been chased away from
Malayalam films, how else would Shakila get invited back?
Shakila was at the height of her fame. When films of big stars
like Mammootty and Mohanlal were sinking, her films raked in the
collections. Many were angry that films made with the sweat of the
brow were being defeated just by mere flesh show of Shakila's
Shakila was also blamed that she was bringing down the
reputation of Malayalam films. The theatres screening her films
were targeted till she finally escaped from Kerala and sought
shelter in Tamilnadu.
After all this drama, Shakila is to act again in a Malayalam
film, that too with Mohanlal! In Chhota Mumbai, Mohanlal
acts as a Shakila fan. Once, on hearing that Shakila is shooting
for a film, he goes there. In this, Shakila acts as an actress.
