Shraddha Kapoor to play ‘Haseena’ and Siddhant Plays Dawood : Apoorva Lakhia


Mumbai : Filmmaker Apoorva Lakhia is happy to have roped in siblings Shraddha and Siddhanth Kapoor for his upcoming biopic on underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena. However Shraddha's brother Siddhanth Kapoor will play her reel brother Dawood Ibrahim role. The film, which will revolve around Haseena's life from her teenage years to her 50s, will reportedly go on floors in December this year. 

Before Shraddha, the film was reportedly offered to Rani Mukerji and Sonakshi Sinha, but the project didn't kick off with either of them. While Shraddha has done a film like Haider, she's largely stuck to safe projects like ABCD 2, Baaghi and Ek Villain. This will be her first film where she'll be seen playing a hard-hitting character based on a controversial real-life personality.

Lakhia said the film will be produced by Swiss entertainment, Karma films and Haseena’s nephew Sameer Antulay, who approached the director with the idea. The “Shootout At Lokhandwala” director said currently the team is working closely to get all the facts and the research correct. The Film will reportedly go on floors in December this year.
