BizAsia had reported not long ago that Shraddha Kapoor and her brother Siddhanth Kapoor would be seen sharing the screen in Apoorva Lakhia’s ‘Haseena’, a film based on the life of Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parkar. Lakhia has now spoken about why he decided to cast the real life brother and sister as siblings in the film.
“Both of them have been locked for the film which starts in November-December in one schedule. Siddhanth was one of the first persons to be locked to play Dawood after he did a screen test. They looked very similar,” said Lakhia to PTI.
Talking further about the film, Lakhia continued, “Haseena’s journey starts from when she is 17 to 40. So, Shraddha fit the role perfectly and she was keen to do something different. Also, the opportunity for both Shraddha and Siddhanth to work together in a film does not come as often”.
The film was initially meant to star Sonakshi Sinha but Shraddha ended up bagging the role.
