Sonakshi Sinha ‘can’t wait’ to play Dawood’s sister
“It is a brilliant script… I can’t wait to play Haseena,” Sonakshi, who is currently shooting for Akira, posted on micro-blogging site Twitter after music composer Shekhar Ravjiani congratulated the 28-year-old for her next project. Haseena Parkar, the elder sister of Dawood, died in July last year. She shot to fame after some rival gangsters led by Arun Gawli gunned down her husband Ismail <g data-gr-id="20">Parkar</g> in a gang war in 1991 which led to a spate of brutal retaliatory killings from the Dawood gang at that time.
Subsequently, Haseena was reportedly acting as the don’s Mumbai business head. Though officially she was not directly implicated in any underworld activities, it is believed that in parts of south Mumbai, nothing moved without her nod. Haseena — The Queen of Mumbai will roll out for shooting early next year. It will bring alive 40 years of <g data-gr-id="21">Haseena’s</g> life and is the emotional saga of a woman and what it meant to be Dawood Ibrahim’s sister.
