Shraddha Kapoor is one busy Bollywood beauty these days! While gearing up for her next release, Half Girlfriend, in May, her intense look from one of her upcoming films, Haseena – The Queen of Mumbai has been trending ever since it was out. Just yesterday, a new poster of this film surfaced and we just could not contain our excitement for the film to hit the theatres now. Siblings Shraddha Kapoor and Siddhanth Kapoor, who had never shared screen space before, will be seen playing notorious siblings Haseena Parkar and Dawood Ibrahim in Apoorva Lakhia’s Haseena.
Directed by Apoorva Lakhia and presented by Swiss Entertainment, Haseena is slated to release on July 14. Shraddha Kapoor has donned a never-before-seen avatar for this film which is loosely based on the life of Dawood Ibrahim’s sister, Haseena Parkar. The film, which was completed in 45 days, will see Shraddha portraying Haseena’s life from being a 17-year-old teenager to being the 43-year-old Queen of Mumbai. Parkar, who had 88 cases registered against her, but was taken to court only once in her life, was rumored to have single-handedly run her brother’s Rs 1,000-crore underworld empire in the city. To look like Haseena Parker, Shraddha had to sit for hours in make-up. For the first time ever, we will see the actress playing such a powerful role on screen.
Shraddha Kapoor has her kitty full with some big movies over the next two years. She has already wrapped up the shooting of both, Half Girlfriend and Haseena which will be released this year in May and July respectively. If reports are to be believed, she has been finalized as the leading lady of Aamir Khan’s next film, Thugs of Hindostan. She has also been the prime contender to play the role of Anuradha Paudwal in the biopic of Gulshan Kumar, which has Akshay Kumar playing the title role of Gulshan Kumar.
From her short role in her debut film, Teen Patti, Shraddha Kapoor has come a long way and has achieved a lot in this short span of her career. Be it for her acting, her singing or her style, she has managed to win over everyone’s hearts. Considered as one of the leading ladies of Bollywood today, Shraddha is all geared up for her big releases this year.
