Apoorva Lakhia during the trailer launch event of ‘Haseena Parkar’ said that Sonakshi Sinha was the first choice for playing the role of Haseena Parkar in the film. Though, due to some issues, Sonakshi was not able to sign up for the film. Explaining the incident and circumstances, Apoorva said:
“We had first approached Sonakshi. Our shoot kept on getting postponed. She was doing ‘Force 2’ at that time and John was injured. Shraddha was totally my second choice. I knew she could play a 17-year-old and a 45-year-old too.”
Siddhanth Kapoor was also present during the trailer launch of the movie. He is playing the role of Shraddha’s brother on the big screen as well. Talking about his experience on working with Shraddha, he said:
“I was cast with Sonakshi Sinha but she could not do the film so my sister came on board which was the best that happened to my life and my career. She has been working so hard to pull it off.”
Talking about her interest in romantic roles, Shraddha said:
“I would always take up an interesting romantic script, and I think being an actor can never be boring. We get to be so many characters; I cannot remember one instance when I was bored. Being an actor and being in films is a real privilege.”
Shraddha will act as the female protagonist in ‘Haseena Parkar’. She was last seen in ‘Half Girlfriend’ alongside Arjun Kapoor. The film is slated to release August 18. Stay tuned with UMD for further updates and share your views in the comments section as well.
