Apoorva Lakhia, the director of Haseena Parkar, received a very pleasant gift a day after his birthday as the new Chairperson of The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), Prasoon Joshi, has only asked for a couple of edits in the film.
 

They requested one word ‘charas’ to be muted and one cut where a woman is shown being assaulted during riots. That’s it.

I happily went with these cuts. No argument. The cuts made sense. I must say the censor experience was quick and pleasant. We were in at 6 pm and out in a few hours. We got a ‘U/A’ with hardly any cuts,” stated Apoorva.

As per the director, the movie is a great risk for Shraddha Kapoor as the character of Haseena is quite opposite to the roles she has played in the past.

Apoorva elaborated, "She plays these chocolaty lovable heroines, where she sings songs. In real life too she is a chirpy person. But Haseena (Haseena Parkar, sister of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim) doesn't have any of these things. Also, everyone was surprised when I approached her. Shraddha plays the role of dreaded 'aapa' (as Haseena Parkar was called), who became a underworld mafia queen after she was unjustly tried and persecuted because she was Dawood Ibrahim's sister. I could only give her a basic idea of what I wanted and I think she had done a great job. It (the film) is a bigger risk for her than it's for me.”

"As an actor, she never questioned, 'Oh why am I playing a mother of four?' That shows how confident she is of her talent the director states .

For a woman who is 30 to play a 50-year-old, where there is no song and dance what she is known for, is fantastic," he added.
