There was once a time when Shakeela claimed that she was one of the pillars of Malayalam film industry. Those were the days when films of even superstars flopped all around.
Producers who lost their money with superstar films used to come to Shakeela for rescue. All they had to do was to make a low-budget soft-porn film with her and recover all the money that they had lost in mainstream commercial films. That eventually ended up in creating enmity between her and the superstars.
Her downfall was inevitable. She withdrew completely from Malayalam and returned to Tamil and Telugu as a comedienne.
Now she has made peace with her former "enemies".
She is going to make a guest appearance in Mohanlal's new film Vasco Da Gamma. Shakeela will be playing a comedy role in her new 'avtar'.
