The movie tells the story of the Dawood ‘s sister’s travails following 1993 Mumbai blasts.
The powerful trailer of Apoorva Lakhia’s Haseena Parkar previews Shraddha Kapoor in a never-before avatar.
She plays Haseena, the sister of Dawood Ibrahim, who is played by Siddhanth Kapoor, Shraddha’s brother. Haseena Parkar tells the story of the Dawood ‘s sister’s travails following 1993 Mumbai blasts.
Shraddha dons two looks in the movie, the young lady who later becomes ‘Apa’ (a Godmother) and mother of four. The kohled eyes and sharp, authoritative look is definitely a first for Shraddha, who has been usually seen in romantic dramas. The movie was initially offered to Sonakshi Sinha, who was then shooting for Force 2.
“She was such a strong woman and I was really fascinated by her story. I was a little nervous because of it is a challenging role, but since day one Apoorva sir was like, ‘you can do it’ I loved the story, the script. Looking at his confidence, even I thought I can do it,” Shraddha said at the trailer launch event.
While Shraddha was last seen in Mohit Suri’s Half Girlfriend, Siddhanth will be seen after 2015’s Jazbaa.
Produced by Nahid Khan the movie also stars Ankur Bhatia and is slated to release on August 18 this year.
