Shraddha Kapoor will next be seen in ‘Haseena Parkar’ which is all set to hit the screens on September 22, 2017. The movie is directed by Apoorva Lakhia and also stars her brother Siddhanth Kapoor in a pivotal role.
This is the first time when Shraddha will be seen in a biopic and when we recently met her we asked if getting into the character of Haseena Parkar was difficult as she couldn’t meet her (Haseena Parkar died in 2014) and as there are not much pictures and videos of her as well. To which the actress replied by saying, “You know my director Apoo (Apoorva Lakhia) was so involved in the research of this film. He has spent about two to two and half years just doing his research and spending time with Haseena. So, he was so well equipped himself which just made it give us all the material that helped us to do our jobs to the best of our abilities. When he met he told me I have met her (Haseena) so many times, this is what I know about her and I was just like wow here we have a director who has already done his homework. So, I was very excited by him and how involved he was to begin with.”
“Firstly like we spent time just listening to him that how he spent time with Haseena, the stories about her, then we spent time with her family to understand how she was as a person. I just wish I met her that could have been different, but she passed away, and unfortunately I couldn’t meet her,” she added.
She was even asked if the real Haseena, who expired in the year 2014, had any inkling that the actress would be playing her in a movie based on her life. Shraddha replied to the same by saying, “I don’t know that.” (Also Read: Shraddha on meeting Saina Nehwal: I was in complete awe)
