Movie on Dawood's sister is making ripples. Apoorva Lakhia had been approached to make a film on Dawood Ibrahim and met the don’s family as part of the prep. During his conversations with his sister, Haseena Parkar, he learnt how they had lived in a 12-ft x12-ft chawl, their childhood and her relationship with her brothers. “I found her story more interesting and asked if I can make a film on her. She agreed after a week to 10 days. This was three-anda- half years ago,” reminisces Apoorva admitting that he’d struggled to find a studio to back the biopic but once he had the producer and his heroine, Shraddha Kapoor, on board, he finished the film in 42 days.
