Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor is set to appear in a never-seen-before avatar on this Friday (September 22). She will feature as Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parkar in Apoorva Lakhia’s movie.
Titled Haseena Parkar, it is a movie based on the real-life story of Haseena, sister of India’s most-wanted criminal Dawood Ibrahim. Popularly called Appa, Haseena entered the world of crime after the death of her husband Ismail.
While the movie is set to release this week, Shraddha has landed into legal trouble before it. According to SpotboyE, the actress’ name is there in the ‘accused’ list of a criminal complaint filed by fashion designers Aj Mistry and Thea Minhas.
The criminal complaint has been filed for allegedly not promoting fashion label ‘AJTM’ during the promotional activities of Haseena Parkar in violation of an agreement.
The complainant said that no promotional activities were undertaken by Shraddha as promised. “Accused wilfully, miserably, intentionally and malafidely failed and neglected to comply with their roles, duties and obligations under the said agreement,” the complainant alleged. The complainant alleged that Shraddha and Swiss Entertainment had full knowledge that if in case they fail to perform their roles, duties and obligation under the said agreement, then the complainant shall incur huge monetary losses.
“However, despite that the accused wilfully and dishonestly failed to do so, only to cheat and delude,” the complaint read. “My clients had worked very hard for the project under their brand name AJTM, as it was their golden entry into Bollywood. After their personal meeting with Ms Shraddha Kapoor, they put their heart and soul into this project titled ‘Haseena Parkar’. “It is very unfortunate that the obligations as undertaken in the agreement were not performed, and my clients felt cheated. Therefore my said clients had no option but to file a criminal complaint against the producer and Shraddha,” the lawyer said.
