Shraddha Kapoor plans to meet young girls in Nagpada, where Haseena Parkar spent her life, to prep for biopic
Shraddha Kapoor, who plays the protagonist in the Haseena Parkar biopic, is eager to play the intense role with conviction. As the film traces the journey of mafia don Dawood Ibrahim's sister right from her teenage days, Shraddha has been continuously prepping to get the look and demeanour right.
A unit hand informs, "Shraddha will sport four different looks since the film will throw the spotlight on the different phases of Haseena's life. So, for the younger portions, the actress has been keenly observing youngsters, including some of her team members who come under that age bracket. She is also planning to meet a few teenage girls from Dongri where Haseena stayed all her life."
For the part where her character becomes a mother, Shraddha has a clutch of pregnancy videos to prepare herself. The unit hand adds, "She seems to be so deeply involved with her character that many have been complimenting her for getting the mannerisms right. In fact, she has several real images of Haseena, transforming from a girl to a woman, as point of reference."
The actress, who is said to be shooting at Trombay studio, tells us, "As an actor, I get to play different characters and take different journeys through each film. Each journey requires its own preparation; that's what is exciting and challenging."
