Shraddha Kapoor's upcoming film Haseena Parkar is keeping the actress occupied ahead of its release but she's reportedly taken out time to arrange for a special screening for Farhan Akhtar, who she is rumoured to be dating. "Shraddha wants Farhan to see her performance in the film, and give his opinion," a report in Deccan Chronicle quoted a source as saying. The special screening has reportedly been arranged after the film was rescheduled - Haseena was earlier expected to hit screens on August 18, when Bareilly Ki Barfi is releasing. The Deccan Chronicle report also added that Shraddha is reportedly eager to have the movie reviewed by Farhan, with whom she has co-starred in 2016 music drama Rock On 2.
- 'Shraddha wants Farhan to see her performance,' a source revealed
- 'And wants Farhan's opinion,' the source added
- 'She thinks Farhan'll give a fair and honest opinion,' the source added
"She feels this is her best performance till date, and wants Farhan's opinion, now that it's been delayed," the source told Deccan Chronicle. "She thinks Farhan will give a fair and honest opinion on her film, considering he's both an actor and director," Deccan Chronicle added the source as saying. Farhan made his debut as a director with 2001's Dil Chahta Hai and Don 2 was his last directed-project.
Shraddha Kapoor, 30, and Farhan Akhtar, 43, have made headlines for a rumoured romance since they started shooting for Rock On 2. Farhan also recently divorced from ex-wife Adhuna Bhabani. However, none of the stars have addressed such speculation directly. In May, speaking to Indian Express Shraddha had said: "These things don't bother me. I choose to ignore it because I feel some stories can become a TV serial. I am like I didn't know I became part of this show and I am playing so and so character. So, it's funny. I laugh at it also. I used to get affected initially but now I ignore it and focus on what I am here to do."
Meanwhile, Farhan Akhtar will next be seen in jail drama Lucknow Central, which releases on September 15. Shraddha Kapoor was last seen in this year's Half Girlfriend.
Directed by Apoorva Lakhia, Shraddha Kapoor co-stars with her brother Siddhanth Kapoor in Haseena Parkar. Siddhanth plays the role of Dawood Ibrahim while the film is a biopic on the underworld don's sister Haseena played by Shraddha.
