In an earlier interview with PTI, Shraddha Kapoor talked about her character in Haseena Parkar and said she has played the role 'to the best of her ability.'
"I tried my best to gain weight and I managed to gain seven-eight kilos. We took help of prosthetics to make me look like Haseena Parkar. I have tried to imbibe her mannerisms and the way she speaks, walks etc. It is entirely my voice, we have not doctored it," PTI quoted the 30-year-old actress as saying.
In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote, "Haseena Parkar is bereft of frisson and focus. It crafts a morally dodgy portrait of the 'godmother' of Nagpada, Dawood Ibrahim's tough-minded sibling who ran the dreaded mafia don's crime syndicate by proxy in the 1990s and the noughties without ever being brought to book. The film falls off the deep end in the process." He gave the film 1.5 stars out of 5.
Shradhha Kapoor's Haseena Parkar released in the theatres along with Sanjay Dutt's Bhoomi and Rajkummar Rao's Newton.
