Actress Shraddha Kapoor, who plays underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parkar in Apoorva Lakhia’s Haseena: The Queen Of Mumbai, today shared a new still from the film. The 30-year-old actress introduced her brother Siddhanth Kapoor’s character in the film via Instagram. Siddhanth plays Dawood Ibrahim. 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. (sic)” The first poster of Haseena: The Queen Of Mumbai was unveiled earlier in February. Shraddha, in a black suit kohled eyes, looked intriguing in the role of Haseena. The actress will portray Haseena’s life from the age 17 to 40.
Of her role and sharing screen space with brother Siddhanth, the Aashiqui 2 actress 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.
Haseena: The Queen Of Mumbai also stars Sharman Joshi and Ankur Bhatia in pivotal roles. The film hits the screens on July 14.
