Shraddha Kapoor, who has mostly played the girl next door, will be seen essaying a dark role for the very first time in Apoorva Lakhia’s upcoming film ‘Haseena Parkar’, which is based on the life of dreaded don Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parkar and the teaser of the film was revealed today.
The teaser, featuring Shraddha Kapoor and her brother Siddhanth Kapoor, who plays Dawood Ibrahim, offers a glimpse into the life of Haseena Parkar, who had lived a normal family life before her husband was gunned down by men from Arun Gawli’s gang, which prompted her to step up and be a part of the notorious ‘D-Company’ and eventually become the ‘Godmother’ of Nagpada. Popularly known as “Aapa”- a name that sent shivers in Mumbai’s Nagpada area, HASEENA PARKAR is a true story based on the life and times of the sister of India’s Most Wanted Man.
The film charts her journey from a young girl to a mother of four to the Godmother of Nagpada across four decades in the Maximum City.
Shraddha is impressively sinister as Haseena and the fact that she has got some badass dialogues like, “Aapa yaad reh gaya na… naam yaad rakhne ki zaroorat nahi”, has made us all the more eager to watch this movie.
Directed by Apoorva Lakhia, Haseena Parkar is slated to release on August 18.
