Press Conference of Haseena Parkar in New Delhi
Shraddha was in town, Delhi with Siddant Kapoor (his brother ), Ankur Bhatia and director Apoorva Lakhia, for the promotion of her upcoming Biopic Haseena Parkar (based on the life of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s sister).
The film’s director Apoorva Lakhia comments, saying, “Her filmography has been different, she has been playing a bubbly young actress and it takes a lot of guts for someone to play a mother of four kids, over 40 years of age.”
Shraddha Kapoor said “You don’t get to play such roles again and again. I was pleasantly surprised when director Apoorva Lakhia came to me with the offer. Haseena’s story was so tragic and intriguing. She’d gone through so much in her life.” ‘I had to gain 7-8 kilos, wear prosthetics and change my voice’
The film shows Haseena’s journey from a 17-year-old teenager to a 43-year-old. Shraddha was able to attain drastically different looks by using prosthetics, body suits and heavy make-up.
Shraddha next assignments based on world badminton champion Saina Nehwal. Further, she has also been signed for the lead role opposite Baahubali star Prabhas (supposedly his first Hindi film) in Saaho.
