After Sonakshi Sinha opted out of Apporva Lakhia's biopic on Dawood Ibrahim's late sister Haseena Parkar, the maker has finally finalised Shraddha Kapoor to play the female lead. Her elder brother Siddhanth takes on the role of Dawood.
The film will touch upon four high points of her life as a crime boss - her dealings with the slum redevelopment authorities, negotiating overseas rights of Hindi films, the Hawala racket, and the territorial wars among cable operators in the city. The brother-sister duo will be seen sharing screen space for the first time.
The film rolls in December in Mumbai where Dongri will be recreated on a set. The unit is set to travel to other cities and the Middle East to shoot Siddhanth's portions.
Wow, this one is going to be a quite exciting film!
