In a casting coup of sorts, Shraddha Kapoor and her real life brother Siddhanth Kapoor, will play siblings in Apoorva Lakhia’s directorial venture Haseena – The Queen of Mumbai.
While Siddhanth will play Dawood Ibrahim in the biopic, his sister will reprise the role of Haseena Parkar.
Initially, Sonakshi Sinha was suppose to play Dawood's sister in the film but she opted out citing date issues.
Confirming the news, director Apoorva Lakhia says, "Yes, Shraddha and Siddhant have confirmed their presence in Haseena. We will shoot the film in October-November."
An excited Shraddha took to Twitter and wrote, 'So excited to play #HaseenaParkar with my brother @SiddhanthKapoor as #Dawood in @ApoorvaLakhia s #HASEENA.'
