Actress Shraddha Kapoor says playing the title role in Haseena Parkar, based on underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s sister, has been an emotionally challenging experience for her. At the trailer launch of the upcoming film, she said, “It’s difficult for me to express my experience in words for ‘Haseena Parkar’. This has been a very exciting and challenging role for me. To play a role of such a strong person... for this true story, it has been a very emotionally challenging experience.”

Explaining why she played the title role, Shraddha said, “When I heard the story and the script of the film, at first I was scared of the challenge. But it was Haseena’s story and everything that happened in her life... made me so interested in the film.” “To be able to play such a real life strong character was huge. I loved the story, I loved the script,” said the Half Girlfriend actress.“If my director thinks I can do it, then I have to trust him. That’s how I took this role,” she added. The film is helmed by Apoorva Lakhia.

Lakhia was also present for the trailer launch, and he couldn’t stop praising Shraddha. “When I wanted to approach Shraddha for this role, people said she won’t be interested in this role. But I wanted to meet her. The advantage of having her is that I personally think she is one of the finest talents in our country right now,” he said. “I think she is amazing. When I started working with her, I realised how easy it is for someone to become her fan. She is really hard working. She gives her best,” he added. The film is set to release on August 18.
