Shraddha Kapoor is known for playing lovey-dovey characters in her films. But for her upcoming film 'Haseena Parkar', Shraddha had to completely transform her look to get into the skin of the character. After the trailer of the film started doing rounds on the web, people appreciated Shraddha's efforts and praised her on social media platforms. 'Haseena Parkar' recently underwent the procedure of film certification and the CBFC passed the film with the exception of two minor cuts.
While talking to a leading daily, director Apoorva Lakhia said, "They requested one word ‘charas’ to be muted and one cut where a woman is shown being assaulted during riots. That’s it. I happily went with these cuts. No argument. The cuts made sense. I must say the censor experience was quick and pleasant. We were in at 6 pm and out in a few hours. We got a ‘U/A’ with hardly any cuts."
Earlier, Apoorva had also spoken about Shraddha's character in the film. "I could only give her a basic idea of what I wanted and I think she had done a great job. It (the film) is a bigger risk for her than it's for me. She plays these chocolaty lovable heroines, where she sings songs. In real life too she is a chirpy person. But Haseena doesn't have any of these things. Also, everyone was surprised when I approached her."
He further added, "As an actor, she never questioned, 'Oh why am I playing a mother of four?' That shows how confident she is of her talent. For a woman who is 30 to play a 50 year old, where there is no song and dance what she is known for, is fantastic."
When asked what had made him choose the controversial story of Dawood Ibrahim, he said, "All of us have a dark side. Why did Dawood Ibrahim do the things he did to become what he is and why didn't you do it? That's interesting to me."
Well, we can hardly wait to see Shraddha in her new avatar. What about you? Stay tuned for more updates.
