“Dabangg” girl Sonakshi Sinha will soon be seen in a biopic portraying underworld don “Dawood Ibrahims’” sister Haseena.
Beautiful actress Sonakshi Sinha has been finalised to play Haseena in the film, titled Haseena — The Queen of Mumbai.It is known to everyone that underworld don Dawood Ibrahim has 12 siblings. But he was closest to his sister Haseena Parkar, who lived in Nagpada here in Mumbai.
She suffered a heart-attack last year and died. She has a fascinating story that is now being made into a film, that is being produced by Mubina Rattonsey and directed by Apoorva Lakhia.
“It’s a great script, a powerful role, a very intriguing story and an opportunity to play a character who is the polar opposite of me. I have always wanted to be a part of a biopic and this is the perfect one. It’s going to be extremely challenging for me and I am looking forward to it” confirms Sonkashi.
“Haseena aapa was a very complex personality. I have just picked up the threads of her journey and knitted together the tapestry of her life. I was approached by Sameer Antulay with the idea and Mubina, Sonakshi and I are all set to bring her story alive” says Aproova.
The film that will begin shooting early next year will capture 40 years of Haseena’s life and is the emotional saga of a woman and what it meant to be Dawood Ibrahim’s sister.
