In the midst of shooting for her forthcoming film, based on terrorist Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parker, Shraddha Kapoor and the rest of the crew were surprised to see Parker’s real family appear on the sets.
Titled ‘Haseena – The Queen of Mumbai’, according to Hindustan Times a source revealed to the media, “There were Haseena Parkar’s three children – Alishah, Umeria and Khushiyan and Haseena’s brother Sameer Antulay. Initially Shraddha and the rest of the cast were alarmed but the atmosphere softened soon and the tension dissolved.”
Parker was also very much a part of the underworld business, where she even earned the title ‘Underworld Queen’. She died of a heart attack in 2014.
Talking about the response that the family gave about the film so far, the source went on to express, “Haseena Parkar’s children and brother fell in love with the way the film was being shot. They had come prepared for the eventuality of falling in love with the film. They had gotten along the real Haseena’s personal belongings, her reading glasses, nose ring and her favourite lipstick which they presented to Shraddha.”
Ankur Bhatia revives the role as Parker’s husband. On meeting her real husband, the actor expressed, “It was an amazing experience for me to meet Haseena Parkar’s children. I had not met them before. They showed me some old photos of their father and gave me tips which will be really useful to play Haseena’s husband.”
Directed by Apoorva Lakhia, ‘Haseena’ will also see Kapoor’s real brother Siddhanth Kapoor play her reel brother as Ibrahim.
