Apoorva Lakhia’s next Haseena Parkar, the biopic of Dawood Ibrahim’s sister has created a lot of curiosity amongst the audience. Though there has been a lot spoken about Dawood Ibrahim – played by Siddhanth Kapoor in the film, – it is very little, people know about his sister (essayed by Shraddha Kapoor) Haseena Parkar.
Apoorva Lakhia invested almost 3 years with the story of Haseena Parkar where he spent time with Haseena herself, her family, police officials and everyone who ever knew Haseena Parkar. The real family of Haseena was very helpful in given Apoorva and his team access to old family pictures.
They once even visited the set of the film when Apoorva was shooting one of the most intense scenes in the film. It had Ankur Bhatia’s character Ibrahim Parkar getting shot and Shraddha Kapoor groaning and weeping. The scene vehement and the entire crew was in silence for a few minutes, and the real family of Haseena Parkar was left with moist eyes.
Ankur Bhatia shares:
“It was very taxing for both Shraddha and me, as we had to go deep into our own dark places to act that scene. As we gave our shot and got out of the car, we saw Haseena’s entire family weeping by the monitor. We must have done something right.”
