The world cannot get enough of her as the intrigue around her continues to be as alluring as ever. Be it her outspoken personality or her astounding journey, Ma Anand Sheela is and will always be a controversial (yet sassy) figure.
After the phenomenal reception to Wild Wild Country, Netflix returns with ‘Searching For Sheela’, a raw, authentic docu-film that explores Sheela’s journey through India after 34 long years and sheds light on her new life post serving time for her alleged crimes. But has the world really let go of the past? ‘Searching for Sheela’ is all set to premiere on April 22, 2021 – exclusively on Netflix.
With the focus entirely on Sheela and her personality, the docu-film explores her journey through India, her big homecoming, while reminiscing about her early life and looking forward to what’s next! It digs deeper in search of Sheela’s true self, her life, and perspective. Does Sheela seek redemption or remain completely unaffected? Was Sheela a criminal or a woman in love? Is Sheela good or bad, black or white? Watch ‘Searching For Sheela’ for these answers as there are ample shades of grey.
Commenting on ‘Searching for Sheela’ and her journey, Sheela Birnstiel, the lady taking center stage, says, ‘Searching for Sheela’ will give you a glimpse of my real self, my identity, my life, and its evolution over the last 40 years. This film is about my journey of returning to my home in India, a journey I have longed for many years. It captures the rollercoaster of emotions I experienced on this journey very well. I am looking forward to sharing my story with the world”
