- Shraddha plays the protagonist in Haseena Parkar
- 'I was scared of the challenge,' says Shraddha
- She co-stars with her real life brother Siddhanth in the movie
Shraddha also added that she came on board the project because she was intrigued by the story of real-life Haseena Parkar. "When I heard the story and the script of the film, at first I was scared of the challenge. But it was Haseena's story and everything that happened in her life made me so interested in the film," IANS quoted her as saying. "To be able to play such a real life strong character was huge. I loved the story, I loved the script," she added.
Meanwhile, the director, who was also present at the trailer launch, said: "When I wanted to approach Shraddha for this role, people said she won't be interested in this role. But I wanted to meet her. The advantage of having her is that I personally think she is one of the finest talents in our country right now," said IANS.
Shraddha plays the protagonist and her brother Siddhanth Kapoor features as Dawood Ibrahim in the film. This is the first time that the real-life brother-sister duo will co-star together. Actors Sharman Joshi and Ankur Bhatia also joins the star cast of Haseena Parkar.
