Shakeela is finally getting married,she was one time the sex goddess of Malayalam who ushered in the soft porn era, now living almost a retired life.
Shakeela who sizzled in movies like Kinnara Thumbikal, Driving School, Kathara and numerous other soft- porn Malayalam during 2000 to 2003 is marrying a Chennai based businessman, whom she says she is in love with “for the last one year”.
Confessed, the former sex symbol: “Yes, I am in love with this guy whom I would not name till the time when both of us will jointly announce our marriage which is likely to be in June 2010.”
Remember, Shakeela is doing only character roles these days and has been extremely low profile after the death of her mother. At a press meet she denied the rumours making the rounds that she was driven out of Malayalam films by the powerful superstars Mammootty and Mohanlal.
Shakeela says: “My time was up with the decline of that type of movies and it had nothing to do with them.”
