At the trailer launch of the film, Shraddha Kapoor spoke about her experience of filming the biopic.
"It's difficult for me to express my experience in words for Haseena Parkar. This has been a very exciting and challenging role for me. To play a role of such a strong person for this true story, it has been a very emotionally challenging experience," news agency IANS quoted Shraddha as saying.
