Luckily, she was not doing any other film while she worked on the Haseena Parkar biopic, and so was able to give the role the heft it required.

"To be able to play such a real life strong character was huge". The first phase shows Haseena, the daughter of the gangster Dawood Ibrahim, who is innocent and a family person and the second phase has shown a middle aged woman, who is constantly told that her mistake is that she is the sister of a goon who is involved in various crimes. Earlier, she was a bit apprehensive about playing Haseena when the script was offered to her by director Apoorva Lakhia. "Looking at his confidence, even I thought I can do it". "I can not remember one instance when I was bored". But I wanted to meet her.

"I think she is fantastic". Recently she stated that she can never be bored of working in romantic movies.

However, she said that getting her make up done was the most uninteresting part of her job. However, turns out that she was not the first choice for the high-octane emotional drama. While talking about her experience of working with the director, Shraddha said, "He is one of the most positive people I have ever met & it was delightful working with him because of that".

Siddhanth, who will be portraying Dawood Ibrahim in the film also said, "It took me a year to prepare for the role".

The Apoorva Lakhia directed film, which also stars Rajesh Tailang, Ankur Bhatia and Sunil Upadhyay, is all set to hit the theatres on August 18.
