Bollywood actor Siddhanth Kapoor, who will be essaying the role of Underworld Don Dawood Ibrahim, says he had no clue about Ibrahim’s sister, Haseena Parkar!
Siddhanth, who has earlier worked in a film related to the crime lord, Shootout At Wadala, didn’t know that Dawood Ibrahim had a sister and was not familiar with her background.
The actor was heard saying, “Apoorva and me used to play cricket a lot and one day, he summoned me over to his place and asked me if I know who Haseena Parkar was? I said I have no idea as though I had heard or read about Dawood, I was absolutely clueless about the fact that he had a sister!
“After that, Apoorva told me that he wants me to play Dawood in a film based on Haseena’s life. My first reaction was that Apoorva was joking with me because I could not believe this at all!”
The actor will be seen working with his real life sister, Shraddha Kapoor, who will be essaying the titular character. The brother-sister duo will be essaying the role of Dawood-Haseena on in the film.
This is the first time that Siddhanth and Shraddha will be working together .
Directed by Apoorva Lakhia, the film will release worldwide on September 22.
