‘Haseena delayed due to date issues, to start soon’
Director Apoorva Lakhia says his upcoming biopic on underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena will start once the dates issue is sorted out. Sonakshi Sinha is likely to star in the titular role in Haseena The Queen of Mumbai. The actor had recently said she is yet to take a call on the biopic.
“Haseena should start soon. It has been a little delayed, it was supposed to start in February. We are waiting to confirm dates and let’s see,” said Lakhia. “She (Sonakshi) has not signed on right now because we are waiting for the dates to come in. She has approved the subject and all that,” he said.
Haseena The Queen of Mumbai will depict the emotional saga of the underworld don’s sister. Lakhia says the film is on track and everyone in the team has liked the subject. “It’s on track... everyone has liked the script, everyone wants to do the film. But we are just having problems with the dates.”
