Previously when the Hindi Film Industry was concerned about a much strong role that can leave a mark, they likewise came up with a movie titled as Bandit Queen, the story of women who was raised to be a dreaded gangster whom everyone feared and from then it happened very rare that any such strong character of women has even appeared on screen and now it seems that the era is coming back with a biopic to be made on Dawood Ibrahim’s sister-Haseena also known as the queen of Mumbai. The film is said to have title role to be essayed by Shraddha Kapoor, an actress who in a short span of time has leave a major mark in the industry by her work and she is also all set to play the character of Haseena.
Till now we all have seen movies made on Dawood Ibrahim and several actors have portrayed the character on screen and not only Dawood Ibrahim, many of the gangsters that took a rise during the same period have also been portrayed by actors and it seems that the dreaded gangster who has been ruling Mumbai from Dubai has became the favorite character of the makers and also his life and now it’s time for Dawood Ibrahim’s sister, Haseena and her life to come on screen. The film will be helmed under the captaincy of Apoorva Lakhia who previously directed Shootout At Lokhandwala which was also based on the real life story of Maya Dolas, dreaded gangster of Mumbai and became more dangerous from the time he was caught under Dawood Ibrahim’s eyes. The film was a huge success and now after a long gap Apoorva Lakhia has yet came up with another real life story to be based on Haseena, the dreaded gangster sister.
Here is the small crux of the women who used to handle Dawood Ibrahim’s business in Mumbai and how she rose to the crime world and became the Godmother.
In our previous article, we talked about Arun Gawli, the gangster turned politician was the root cause for dragging Haseena Parkar to the crime world. It was 1991 when Haseena Parkar’s husband Ismail Parkar was shot down dead by the notorious gangster-Arun Gawli who at the time was expanding his criminal activities in Mumbai and this gave the necessary rise to Haseena Parkar to come into the underworld and she began her criminal activities. Soon Haseena Parkar started heading her crime syndicate and not only this, Haseena Parkar also took the charge of Dawood’s small businesses. Haseena Parkar was allegedly involved in Hawala rackets to send money from the Middle-east to India and vice versa and most of Haseena Parkar’s money came from settling construction and property disputes. When Dawood shifted his base to Dubai, it was his sister who took full charge of Mumbai’s criminal activities and after spending her life as a criminal, she was died of a cardiac arrest.
In the film, the role of Dawood Ibrahim will be played by Siddhant Kapoor, Sharddha’s real brother.
