We have exclusively learnt that the beautiful actress Sonakshi Sinha has been finalised to play Haseena in the film, titled Haseena The Queen of Mumbai.

Confirming the news, Sonakshi said, “It’s a great script, a powerful role, a very intriguing story and an opportunity to play a character who is the polar opposite of me. I have always wanted to be a part of a biopic and this is the perfect one. It’s going to be extremely challenging for me and I am looking forward to it.”

Apoorva Lakhia said, “Haseena aapa was a very complex personality. I have just picked up the threads of her journey and knitted together the tapestry of her life. I was approached by Sameer Antulay with the idea and Mubina, Sonakshi and I are all set to bring her story alive.”

The film that will begin shooting early next year will capture 40 years of Haseena’s life and is the emotional saga of a woman and what it meant to be Dawood Ibrahim’s sister.
