Shraddha Kapoor want’s to meet the real Haseena Parkar: I wish I could meet her, She added
Shraddha, who will soon be seen in Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parkar biopic, want’s to meet the real Haseena Parkar.
The girl-next-door, who only did films of the romantic genre, Shraddha Kapoor is going to play a challenging role yet.
Her brave attempt in Apoorva Lakhia’s directorial ‘Haseena Parkar,’ where she portrays the character of Haseena, the infamous sister of Mumbai’s gangster Dawood Ibrahim can be called as one of her career’s challenging role yet. Shraddha has displayed immeasurable acting skills and has performed this demanding character exceedingly well.
On Tuesday, the entire cast and crew of ‘Haseena Parkar’ were present at the trailer launch of the film, which included Shraddha Kapoor, Siddhanth Kapoor, Ankur Bhatia (essays Haseena’s huband’s role), director Apoorva Lakhia and producer Nahid Khan.
Shraddha looked quite elated with the response she’s been receiving for the teaser and now the trailer. She said no words could describe her journey throughout this film. The actress had to gain immense weight to portray a 17-year-old girl to a 40s character, and is now working immensely to shed those extra kilos.
When she was asked, that if she’s met the real Queen of Mumbai- Haseena and the actress states that she has never met her personally.
She continued, “I wish I could meet her and imbibe those characteristics in my performance through my character, but director Apoorva Lakhia has met her several times, he explained her character to me” said Shraddha and this is how she got the nuances correct.
Apoorva Lakhia’s directorial ‘Haseena Parkar’ is slated to release on August 28.
Also, she added that this role was so taxing that it left a huge impact on her. While she was shooting for this film, she was simultaneously dubbing for her film ‘Half Girlfriend’ with Arjun Kapoor, but was asked by director of this film Mohit Suri to leave the dubbing session and return back home. You know why? It was the interference of her desi tone, which she used for ‘Haseena Parkar’ with ‘Half Girlfriend’s Riya Somani.
