Finally, the first trailer of Shraddha Kapoor's Haseena Parkar is out. The film, directed by Apoorva Lakhia, is a biopic of Haseena Parkar, who was the younger sister of dreaded underworld don, Dawood Ibrahim. The trailer showcases her transformation from being a simpleton to the 'Aapa of Mumbai.' It also showcases how, because of the misdeeds of her brother, she often had to bear the brunt. As far as performance in the film is concerned we'll assess that when the film will hit screens on August 18, 2017, but for her appearance in the film, looks like Shraddha Kapoor has worked hard to achieve the desired getup. She looks eerily similar to the original Haseena Parkar even if her physique may not be the same.
Interestingly, she was not the first choice for the role but it was Sonakshi Sinha who was first offered the part. Sonakshi couldn't do the role due to date issues. According to TOI sources, "Sona was interested in the project because she felt that the script was great. But, since the movie has to be finished in one 45-day long schedule, she faces problems with the same. As the actress feels that there is no point keeping anyone waiting, she has cleared the air about her date clash."

Shraddha as well as Apoorva were asked about the same at the trailer launch of the film, and the director stated, "We had first approached Sonakshi. Our shoot kept on getting postponed. She was doing Force at that time and John had got injured." He further stated, "Shraddha was totally my second choice. I knew she could play a 17 year old and a 45 year old too." Shraddha stated, "I stay in my own bubble. I was just happy that Apurva offered it to me." Also read: Shraddha Kapoor REPLACES Sonakshi Sinha in Apoorv Lakhia's Haseena!
While Shraddha will be seen as Haseena Parkar in Haseena Parkar. Did you like her look in the film? Or do you think that Sonakshi Sinha was a better choice and would have done more justice to the character?
