The film, which is being directed by the Shootout at Lokhandwala helmer Apoorva Lakhia, will cover the story of Haseena’s life from the age of 17 to 40. While playing 17-year-old is not going to be that challenging for the actor, watching Shraddha at the age of 40 will be quite exciting.

Shraddha’s elder brother Siddhanth Kapoor will essay the role of Dawood. Initially, it was Sonakshi Sinha who had agreed to do the role of Haseena but she later opted out. This is the first time that both brother-sister duo will be seen on the screen.
