Yes, you have got it right. Dawood Ibrahim as the subject of Bollywood movies is no more a craze. Its his sister, Haseena Parkar who has been in the limelights recently. The shooting of her biopic– the movies “Haseena– The Queen of Mumbai”, is in full swing with the lead role to Shraddha Kapoor.
the Hindi movie is directed by Apoorva Lakhia and produced by Nahid Khan. The principal photography of the film began in February 2016 and the shooting started on 11 October 2016. The film is based on terrorist Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parkar. The film marks Shraddha Kapoor’s first female protagonist venture as she is essaying the title role. Kapoor’s real brother, Siddhanth Kapoor portrays the role of Dawood Ibrahim, and Ankur Bhatia plays the role of Haseena’s husband.
The film, which is based on Haseena Parkar, the late sister of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, is slated to show Shraddha in a fearless and bold avatar, which has never been seen before. Her look in the poster is extremely fearless and bold, and you instantly forget how you have seen her in Bollywood so far.
Shraddha’s role will showcase the life of Haseena from the age of 17 to 40. And if there is one thing that Shraddha regrets about her role, it is the chance of not having met Haseena herself who passed away in 2014. Earlier, she spoke about how she hopes to be convincing with this film and character.
While Shraddha takes the front in the still, we cannot give a miss to the role of actor’s real brother Siddhanth Kapoor, who portrays as Dawood Ibrahim. Seems like the actor has got the mannerism of the Don just right. Siddhanth has always been seen in supportive roles. His last film was Ugly, starring Ronit Roy, which was critically acclaimed. But with this film, he might just make it big in the industry. Haseena: The Queen of Mumbai has been directed by Apoorva Lakhia.
The film is scheduled to release on July 14.
