Rumours were doing the rounds that the biopic is facing production issues with a producer and financier yet to come on board.
The film will track 40 years of Haseena's life and is said to be an emotional saga of a woman. It will also depict what it meant to be Dawood Ibrahim's sister.
Haseena Parkar, the elder sister of Dawood, died in July in 2015. She shot to fame after some rival gangsters led by Arun Gawli gunned down her husband Ismail Parkar in a gang war in 1991, which led to a spate of brutal retaliatory killings from the Dawood's gang at that time.
Haseena was reportedly, acting as the don's Mumbai business head. Though officially she was not directly implicated in any underworld activities, it is believed that she has strong holds in parts of south Mumbai.
