After all the hullabaloo surrounding Rani Mukerji Chopra’s sudden weight gain and her looking quite plum lately, there have been all kinds of speculations and gossip in B-town. While Rani’s appearance at a dance reality show sparked her pregnancy rumours, the Chopra bahu slammed all the reports. We found out the real reason!
Rani Mukerji is all set to play the role of Haseena Parkar, gangster Dawood Ibrahim’s sister, who is also known as the ‘lady don of Nagpada’. Yes, you read it right! Now, that says it all, isn’t it? The film touted as a biopic on Haseena will be helmed by Apoorva Lakhia, who had directed films like Shootout At Wadala, Mission Istanbul and Zanjeer remake in the past.
Beginning this year, there were reports that Apoorva had been planning to make a film on Haseena Parkar. In fact, Lakhia has also registered the title Haseena and was actively researching facts about her life. While talking to a newspaper then the filmmaker said, “We have registered the name Haseena. She is Dawood’s sister and has a beautiful life story to tell.” Since Haseena has had a controversial life, Apoorva plans on changing names in his movie.
A source informs, “Rani has been gaining weight to look like the character of Haseena Parkar in Haseena. The film depicting the life of the controversial character is set to go on floors in September this year. The makers will make an official announcement soon.”
Interestingly, while promoting Mardaani, Rani had clearly mentioned that her next after Mardaani will be outside Yash Raj Films. Both Apoorva and Rani remained unavailable for comment.
