There is long list of actors, who have played the controversial gangster Dawood Ibrahim, the latest one try his hand on the role, Siddhanth Kapoor quips that his portrayal of the role is different as he has age factor working in his favor.
Siddhanth Kapoor will be seen playing the role of Dawood Ibrahim in upcoming “Haseena Parkar”. Earlier Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Rishi Kapoor, Sonu Sood and many more have tried to create their version of the role but Siddhant’s portrayal is different and he shares his thoughts.
“I did think about playing the role differently. Rishi Kapoor, Sonu Sood, Akshay Kumar, and Ajay Devgn, they all are experienced and legendary actors but the character of Dawood Ibrahim in our film, he evolves from 18 years to 40 years”
“So no one has ever seen Dawood Ibrahim, who is 18, 20 or 25 years old. So we had that liberty and freedom to change the look, we could play around with it but when he crosses 35, everyone else has already played that version. So the real challenge came there” added Siddhanth.
Haseena Parkar is an upcoming biographical crime film directed by Apoorva Lakhia and produced by Nahid Khan.
The film is based on terrorist Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parkar. The film marks Shraddha Kapoor’s first female protagonist venture as she is essaying the title role.
