Shraddha Kapoor who was last seen in Half Girlfriend opposite Arjun Kapoor will next be seen in Haseena Parker wherein she will be seen essaying the role of Dawood Ibrahim’s sister.
The movie has further been delayed to avoid a clash with Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez’s A Gentleman which is scheduled to release on August 25, 2017.
A source close to Haseena Parkar revealed to a tabloid, “The decision to postpone the film was taken last week. Anil Thadani, the producers and director Apoorva Lakhia realized that August was cluttered with too many releases. They realized that Haseena Parkar will have to compete with two biggies that are releasing in the weeks before – Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal and Akshay Kumar’s Toilet Ek Prem Katha. What makes it worse is that besides Haseena Parkar, there are three releases lined up for August 18 – Bareily Ki Barfi, Newton and Partition 1947.”
Now, according to a report in a leading daily, Shraddha is apparently preparing to hold a special screening of her film Haseena for her rumoured beau Farhan Akhtar. Despite all the conjecture regarding her relationship with the actor-filmmaker, the actor wants him to see and react to her performance in the movie.
The leading daily quoted a source saying, “Shraddha wants Farhan to see her performance in the film, and give his opinion. She feels this is her best performance till date, and wants Farhan’s opinion, now that it’s been delayed. She thinks Farhan will give a fair and honest opinion on her film, considering he’s both an actor and director.”
