Interestingly, both the films are real life stories. While Sarbjit was the story of Dalbir Kaur, the elder sister of Sarabjit Singh who fought a long legal battle for the release of her brother from a Pakistani jail, Hasina is the story of Hasina Parkar, sister of Dawood Ibrahim.
Talking about his role, Ankur said: “I am super-excited to work with Shraddha as I think she’s an immensely talented actress. I’ve been longing to work with Apoorva Lakhia and I’m so glad he gave me the opportunity.”
“I play a tall Pathan character who is filled with joie de vivre. I am really excited to play this part,” added Ankur.
