Shraddha Kapoor has kicked off the shooting for Apoorva Lakhani’s, Haseena with her brother Siddhant Kapoor. The movie is based on the life of Haseena Parkar, Dawood Ibrahim’s life. The actress wanted to make herself familiar with the character and the area she lived in. Shraddha also went ahead and met top cops in that area as well as Haseena and Dawood’s school teacher and tailor.
A source close to the 29-year-old actress said, “Apoorva and Shraddha are sparing no effort to make sure that the film looks as authentic as possible. After visiting Nagpada a few times in a burqa, to get more information about Haseena’s mannerisms, she had a big meeting with the cops of that time, at one of the police clubs in South Mumbai. She met Haseena’s and Dawood’s school teacher who taught at the same madrasa in Nagpada. She has been having personal meetings with them at Apoorva’s home and meeting Haseena’s children, family, aunts and uncles.”
The source further added, “The shooting has started at Essel Studios and the actress is very nervous. Shraddha knows she has to get her research and body language correct because if she doesn’t she will get plenty of flak so she has taken it up as a challenge. She is playing a mother of four children and her age will be shown with the help of prosthetic makeup. The costume designer has used the same materials from the same shops that Haseena used to buy her materials from.”
Now, this is some dedication Shraddha has towards a film!
