Getting into dad’s suit & sunglasses


Actor Siddhant Kapoor will be seen teaming up with sister Shraddha Kapoor for the very first time in ApoorvaLakhia’s upcoming film ‘Haseena’, which is based on the life of Dawood’s sister HaseenaParkar and Siddhant will be seen playing Dawood while Shraddha will play Haseena.

In his two looks that the makers revealed recently, the boyish Siddhant looks utterly sinister and menacing as the young Dawood with his slicked back hair, a flashy suit and oversized aviator sunglasses. However, did you know the interesting story behind Siddhant’s look test for the film?

The actor says with a guffaw, “ApoorvaLakhia told me ‘I know you will pull off the acting, but convince me that you can look like him.’ I then hired a photographer and got into the full old school look with dad’s clothes and sunglasses, did a shoot and nailed the look.” Siddhant, who also had to put on weight for his role as the older Dawood, binged on chocolates and burgers to put on 9 kilos for some portions of the film. Haseena is slated to release on July 14.
