Shraddha Kapoor, Siddhant Kapoor, Apoorva Lakhia and Ankur Bhatia were present at the song launch of their upcoming film Haseena Parkar on Tuesday in Mumbai. While interacting with media, Apoorva stated that Shraddha Kapoor has evolved into Haseena Parkar.
Praising the lead actress of the film, Apoorva said, “I think it’s really great that Shraddha did this film because at this age, her filmography has been different, she has been playing bubbly, young roles as an actress and now with this film, it takes lot of guts for someone like Shraddha to play a mother of 4 kids and to age over 40 years, I feel that comes out of the confidence she has on her own talent. I am extremely grateful to Shraddha that I got Shraddha in this film because she is evolved into Haseena Parkar”
Sharing the reason why the first launched romantic song in the film, he said, “It’s a tragic life of a woman. For someone, she is a god mother and for others she is gangster but I feel that is people to decide but the important part is that she had a beautiful marriage. This song is composed by Sachin-Jigar who has done their job beautifully so we felt that this is ideal song to show softer side of Haseena Parkar because eventually she was romantic when she was young but victim of circumstances which got her where she was”.
When asked him whether he is facing any kind of objection with regard to this film because Haseena was controversial figure as her brother Dawood Ibrahim, he said, “It’s a journey of a woman when she was 17 to 40 years of age. In that journey our country saw Bombay bomb blast, Bombay riots, Babri Masjid Demolition, all these incidents we have tried to show in our film in the span of 2 hours so I feel there is nothing objectionable in this film. There are incidents in the film where we have given exact dates and those incidents have taken place so we have tried to make it as real as possible and plus, I don’t use abuses in my films and I don’t degrade women by any means, I always try to make clean film.”
There were reports that makers of Haseena Parkar is thinking of postponing release date of the film, rubbishing hose reports, Apoorva said, “ People are free write what they want as long as my film is in the news. We are coming on 22 September and we have never said anything otherwise and we are looking forward for the release of the film”
Hassena Parkar is clashing on the box-office with Sanjay Dutt’s comeback film Bhoomi, when asked to react on that, he said, “Sanju sir is very close and dear friend of mine. We went to same school together. I feel both these films are of two different genres and we both spoke about it and there is no problem. Every week there are 2-3 films coming up so fortunately or unfortunately, we both are coming together. I hope Sanju sir’s film rocks because he deserves a big hit after his comeback in the movies. I am releasing this film but it’s a call made by producers and we stood to our dates so I hope both films do well”
Haseena Parkar is releasing on 22 September, 2017.
