- Shraddha co-stars with her brother in Haseena Parkar
- "I tried my best to gain weight," said Shraddha
- "Haseena is a bigger risk for her," the director revealed
"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," Shraddha had told news agency PTI.
Shraddha, who has mostly featured in movies of the romance genre - Ok Jaanu, Baaghi, Ek Villain and Half Girlfriend to name a few - was actually startled when she was approached for the role, revealed the director to PTI. "I could only give her a basic idea of what I wanted and I think she had done a great job. It (the film) is a bigger risk for her than it's for me," he added.
Will Haseena Parkar be able to live up to the cine-goers' expectations? Only box office numbers will tell.
