Finally, the trailer of Shraddha Kapoor starrer Haseena Parkar came out yesterday. The trailer showcased the life of underworld don, Dawood Ibrahim‘s younger sister Haseena. The trailer showed a promising transformation of Shraddha Kapoor from a sweet girl next door to the fierce, ruthless godmother Haseena Parkar. But did you know Shraddha Kapoor was not the first choice for the film? Interestingly the original choice was for the role was Sonakshi Sinha.
Director Apoorva Lakhia at the trailer launch of the film said “We had first approached Sonakshi. Our shoot kept on getting postponed. She was doing Force 2 at that time and John was injured. Shraddha was totally my second choice. I knew she could play a 17-year-old and a 45-year-old too,”
Shraddha Kapoor’s brother Siddhanth Kapoor, who portrays the character of Dawood Ibrahim, in the film said “I was cast with Sonakshi Sinha but she could not do the film so my sister came on board which was the best that happened to my life and my career. She has been working so hard to pull it off.”
Well, the answer to whether Shraddha was a wise choice for Haseena Parkar will be out only once the film hits theatres.
