In the eyes of civil society, underworld don Dawood Ibrahim's sister Haseena Parkar could be called an alleged criminal, but after playing her in the upcoming biopic, Shraddha Kapoor has an empathetic attitude towards the late Parkar. Kapoor has clarified that the film is not a violent film.

"By the trailer one might feel that it is a violent film, but that's not the case. Haseena was married to her elder brother's best friend, Ibrahim, who used to run a restaurant and in his free time did stunts in films. She got married at a young age and they had four children. She had a beautiful marriage and was madly in love with her husband, who she lost at a young age,” Kapoor told Press Trust of India news agency.

Director Apoorva Lakhia felt that Parkar led a tragic life having lost her husband at an early age, who was shot by rival gangster Arun Gawli’s men.

“The gang war was between Arun Gawli and Dawood Ibrahim and Arun's men shot Haseena's husband. She carried him on her shoulder. It's a tragic life. In some areas she is a godmother and in some areas she is a gangster and that is for people to decide,” said Lakhia.

Film on tainted and controversial personalities always lead to a debate whether there is a need to make a film on such characters. Filmmakers always the run risk of being accused of glorifying such persons.

Haseena Parkar will be released on 22 September.
