MUMBAI: Actress Sonakshi Sinha is yet to take a call on the biopic to be made on underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena, saying she was surprised with the film’s content.
Gossip mills are abuzz that Sonakshi has been finalised to play the protagonist in the film, titled “Haseena: The Queen of Mumbai”.
“We are just in talks for it. Till I sign on the dotted line I would prefer not to talk about it,” Sonakshi told Indian news agency.
To be directed by Apoorva Lakhia, the film will depict the emotional saga of the underworld don’s sister.
“I wasn’t surprised, I felt good that the makers felt I could carry off such a powerful role. I was surprised because of the content as I have never done that before,” Sonakshi said.
When asked if the content was a worry factor for her while signing the film, she said, “No, not really.”
The 28-year-old actress will be seen next in Abhinay Deo’s “Force 2” and “Akira”, directed by AR Murugadoss.
“2016 will be an action-packed year. I am still in talks for some more projects, very soon there will be some announcements made,” she added.
