Haseena's story fascinated me: Apoorva Lakhia

New Delhi, Sep 14 (UNI) After hearing the story of Dawood Ibrahim's sister Haseena, film director Apoorva Lakhia was fascinated so much that led him to make a film on her life.

Speaking about his next directorial venture 'Haseena Parkar', expected to hit the screens this month, Apoorva Lakhia said that when he met Haseena, her story fascinated him a lot.

''Haseena was a innocent girl from a crime family and what she went through because of her family background, fascinated me a lot and I proposed that we could make a film on her,'' the filmmaker said.
''Though she was initially reluctant, we finally managed to persuade her to share her story with us and the rest is history,'' says Apoorva, who has delivered a crime thrillers like 'Shootout at Lokhandwala' and 'Shoot out at wadala'.

The filmmaker said that earlier he was approached to make a film on Dawood, but declined since, there have been so many films based on the gangster and gangwars.
''I was actually approached to make a film on Dawood, which I refused as there have been so many films based on him. But the makers told me that people don’t know much about Dawood’s younger days and this intrigued me, so I agreed to meet his family members to get to know more about him.

That is how I met Haseena and was immediately fascinated by her story and I ended up making ‘Haseena Parkar’,'' the filmmaker said.
Directed by Apoorva Lakhia, ‘Haseena Parkar’, based on the life of dreaded don Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena , stars Shraddha Kapoor, Siddhanth Kapoor and Ankur Bhatia. Produced by Nahid Khan with Swiss Entertainment and co-produced by Sameer Antulay and Babu Tyagi, the film is set to release on September 22.
