Shraddha Kapoor, who will be next seen in Apoorva Lakhia’s Haseena Parkar, based on the story of Dawood Ibrahim’s sister, is on a promotional spree. The film releases on September 22. The cast includes Shraddha Kapoor, Siddhanth Kapoor, Ankur Bhatia and Sharman Joshi.

While talking about the movie, Shraddha said, "I loved the story. It's a real life character, who has suffered so much loss in her life. The film was challenging for me. And I have played the role of Haseena to the best of my abilities… We have tried to stay true to the story and the character.”

When asked if she knew anything about Haseena Parkar before the movie, she said, “I knew nothing about her. From family members you hear personal anecdotes, how the person is in real life, the personality traits. The insight from her family was valuable to understand how she needs to be portrayed on the screen. Apoorva Lakhia had the opportunity to meet her and understand her. Unfortunately, I could not as she had passed away. Apoorva knew her character so well and it helped us while doing the scenes.”

She further added, "We have portrayed a holistic view of this lady, we have shown the angle of law, her own perspective and that of other people. Apoorva did all the research. The audience is free to make their own judgment.”

She concluded by saying, “I managed to gain seven-eight kilos. We took help of prosthetics to make me look like Haseena Parkar. I have tried to imbibe her mannerisms and the way she speaks, walks etc. It’s entirely my voice, we have not doctored it.”
