- Shraddha Kapoor plays Dawood Ibrahim's sister Haseena Parkar
- I think she had done a great job: Apoorva Lakhia
- Haseena Parkar will release on September 22
"As an actor, she never questioned, 'Oh why am I playing a mother of four?' That shows how confident she is of her talent. For a woman who is 30 to play a 50-year-old, where there is no song and dance what she is known for, is fantastic," he added.
Haseena Parkar is Apoorva Lakhia's fourth crime thriller after Shootout at Lokhandwala, Mission Istanbul and Zanjeer. Of his choice of genre, Apoorva Lakhia said: "All of us have a dark side. Why did Dawood Ibrahim do the things he did to become what he is and why didn't you do it? That's interesting to me. What makes a guy break the law and at the same time be religious and family-oriented is what fascinates me. The only thing is, they decide to take a shorter route in life."
Haseena Parkar is releasing on September 22 along with Sanjay Dutt's Bhoomi. "We are releasing on the same day. We had a chat and are cool about it. I really hope his film does phenomenally well because I love him. He deserves to come back," Apoorva Lakhia told PTI.
