Ever since Shraddha Kapoor stepped in Bollywood, we have only seen her girlie side in films, girl-next door roles or a delicate girl who romances her co-stars. Though she has proved her mettle in various departments from acting to singing to dancing to knocking down goons, but for the first time, Shraddha steps out of her comfort zone for her upcoming film HASEENA PARKAR, which is based on the life of dreaded don Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parkar.
While Shraddha has already been in news for her absolutely different avatar as she plays the title role, her mannerisms & killing look has also been talked about, now she nails it in the first teaser of the film that released today. Shraddha as fearless and feisty character looks unbelievable. Shraddha is impressively sinister as Haseena and the fact that she has got some badass dialogues like, “Aapa yaad reh gaya na… naam yaad rakhne ki zaroorat nahi”, has made us curious to check the trailer.
Certainly, it’s a great opportunity for Shraddha to showcase some versatility with this film so early in her career. Even if the film doesn’t work, Shraddha will always be remembered that she dared to experiment something new. This may highlight a different facet of Shraddha as an actor and she can perhaps further prove that actresses are not just for glam quotient in the film. If given a chance they can fly high and can totally run the film on their shoulders.
Having said that, it’s just the few seconder teaser wherein Shraddha succeeds in impressing us in few glimpses with her gritty look, her intrepid imperious body language and serious tone. However, if she really suits the role to T or does full justice to the character is something we can say only after watching the film. It would be indeed a challenge for Shraddha, who has been like a Barbie doll all this while, to step in a striking role. If she fails to deliver it or live up to the expectations, this can also turn a mockery for her. Let’s wait and watch how Shraddha takes it to another level.
Since the teaser highlights Shraddha, we could only see few glimpses of Siddhant Kapoor, who plays the deadly don. Perhaps, we can see more of him in subsequent promotional teasers and trailers.
Directed by Apoorva Lakhia, HASEENA PARKAR, which stars Shraddha’s brother Siddhanth Kapoor as Dawood Ibrahim, is being presented by Swiss Entertainment and has been produced by Nahid Khan. HASEENA PARKAR is slated to release on August 18.
