Sonakshi Sinha on date hunt for ‘Haseena’
Mumbai: Sonakshi Sinha was compelled to come out of her Twitter hiatus to clear the air surrounding her project “Haseena” hitting a roadblock. The actress says she is trying to squeeze out time and dates to shoot for the film.
The “Lootera” star, who also has Abhinay Deo’s “Force 2” up her sleeve, took to the micro-blogging site to share the update on the film, which is based on the life of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parkar.
“Just an update on ‘Haseena’, am trying to work out the dates. This film is very special to me and I’m trying my best to clear the date clash. Back on break,” shared Sonakshi, who is essaying the titular character in the Apoorva Lakhia directorial.
Several reports suggested that the biopic is facing production issues with a producer and financier yet to come on board.
The film will bring alive 40 years of Haseena’s life and is said to be an emotional saga of a woman and what it meant to be Dawood Ibrahim’s sister.
Haseena Parkar, the elder sister of Dawood, died in July last year. She shot to fame after some rival gangsters led by Arun Gawli gunned down her husband Ismail Parkar in a gang war in 1991 which led to a spate of brutal retaliatory killings from the Dawood gang at that time.
Subsequently, Haseena was reportedly acting as the don’s Mumbai business head. Though officially she was not directly implicated in any underworld activities, it is believed that in parts of south Mumbai, nothing moved without her nod.
