Sonakshi ‘can’t wait’ to play Dawood’s sister

Mumbai, Aug 3 (IANS) Actress Sonakshi Sinha is looking forward to essaying underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parkar on screen in filmmaker Apoorva Lakhia’s upcoming biopic “Haseena – The Queen of Mumbai”. She says the film has a “brilliant script” and she “can’t wait” to take on the role.

“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 Parkar 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.

This is not the first time Sonakshi will be starring in an underworld film. She played Dawood’s love interest in “Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai Dobaara!”, which was said to be based on the life of the fugitive don.

“Haseena – The Queen of Mumbai” will roll out for shooting early next year. It will bring alive 40 years of Haseena’s life and is the emotional saga of a woman and what it meant to be Dawood Ibrahim’s sister.
