Actress Richa Chadha features in 12 different avatars, striking poses inspired by the posters of pulp movies from the 1990s, in a new calendar in accordance to promote her upcoming film 'Shakeela'.

Richa is seen posing in different avatars for each month along with a completely made up poster of a fictional movie name and elements in each of the calendar pages. The calendar is to be launched soon.

Richa said in a statement: "Even though our film is currently in post-production, we wanted to do something special ahead of the film's release.

The team thought we should pay this homage to her (Shakeela) and the films that she has been a part of. It is quirky and tongue in cheek, so we are aware many people may not understand it.

But there's an underbelly to cinema and it`s often crazy and colourful. I hope people find the humour we did in this calendar and enjoy the world of these 1990s` pulp films."

The calendar will also bear a warning to the consumers that each of these images and posters bears no resemblance to any real person or any other actual film, and that they are simply to be taken in light-hearted humour.
