Haseena: The Queen of Mumbai is an upcoming Indian biographical crime film directed by Apoorva Lakhia and produced by Nahid Khan. The principal photography of the film began in February 2016 and the shooting started on 11 October 2016. The film is based on terrorist Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parkar. The film marks Shraddha Kapoor’s first female protagonist venture as she is essaying the title role. Kapoor’s real brother,Siddhanth Kapoor portrays the role of Dawood Ibrahim, and Ankur Bhatia plays the role of Haseena’s husband.
The film is based on the life of Mumbai underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s sister, Haseena.
Director Apoorva Lakhia too posted the picture on Twitter and wrote: “And introducing the brother @SiddhanthKapoor to his sister @ShraddhaKapoor #Haseena @AnkBhatia real to reel life siblings, 14th July, 2017.
Shraddha said that she’s ‘excited’ and ‘nervous’ about it. She told news agency PTI, “I am very excited and nervous because I’ve been thinking if I have to do a scene with him, I’ve to forget that he is my bhaiya. He is the character in the film who is also my brother. But ultimately I think it’ll help that we are brothers and sisters. I hope that bond translates on screen.”
Shraddha, who will also be seen in Mohit Suri’s Half Girlfriend opposite Arjun Kapoor later this year, said that it was “challenging” for her to switch between contrasting roles on a regular basis.
