This week, Apoorva Lakhia began shooting for Haseena, his raw gritty bio-pic on Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parkar, with an item song featuring Siddhanth Kapoor.
Says a source in the know, “It’s an incident out of Dawood’s early days when after a successful mission, Dawood and his men head to a dance bar, get drunk and break into a jig.”
Siddhanth Kapoor, who plays Dawood, is said to be an ‘amazing dancer’, just like his dad Shakti Kapoor.
“In fact, they thought of making Dawood dance in the club sequence only after the director Apoorva Lakhia realized how well junior Kapoor danced. It will be the only light moment in the raw and tense film,” says the source.
Interestingly, real-life siblings Shraddha Kapoor and Siddhanth Kapoor play Haseena Parkar and Dawood Ibrahim in Lakhia’s film.
Laughs Siddhanth, “The number was a great deal of fun. I think, we got all the ghaati (folksy) moves right.”
