Shakeela wants to shed sexy image


Shakila @ Aasami trailer launch

On the International Women’s Week, which ends today, the focus naturally is on women and their various achievements. Personalities from the film world are in focus throughout the week.

The likes of Aishwarya Dhanush, veteran actress Saranya and playback singer-entrepreneur Chinmayee participated in various events to mark the occasion.

The surprise, of course, was actress Shakeela, who while appearing in a radio show, said she had more to offer in filmdom and expressed her desire to act in meaningful roles. She said she would like to feature in films in roles like that of a mother, sister, ‘anni’, etc. She urged film-makers to give her a chance to shed her ‘sexy’ image and that she was ready for character roles.

Also, Aishwarya Dhanush was seen at an event organised by a leading private bank to discuss if women were really financially independent.
