Shraddha Kapoor hopes to look convincing as Haseena Parker in the biopic on underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s sister. Haseena: The Queen of Mumbai is an upcoming Indian Bollywood biographical film directed by Apoorva Lakhia and while Shraddha plays the lead, her brother Siddhanth will be seen portraying the role of Dawood Ibrahim. “I am excited but I am more nervous as I play from the age of 17 to 43 so that whole character graph is there. The character is going to be difficult. I hope I’m convincing,” Shraddha said on the sidelines of Global Citizen Festival India, here last night.
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. Shraddha says she is watching some video footage featuring Haseena to get the nuances of the character right. The actor appeared in musical drama Rock On 2, which did not do well at the box-office due to demonization.
Shraddha, who is disheartened with the response to her film, said “It’s sad that the film has not done well, you do feel bad. You work hard and spend so much time on a film, a Friday comes and decides the fate of the film. I wish the film did better and people would have liked the film. I guess there are some mixed response and I hope people like the film.”
