It was an unexpected  surprise for Shradha Kapoor at Mehboob Studios , Mumbai on Tuesday afternoon, when members of  Dawood’s family visited her shooting of Haseena, the bio-pic on Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parkar directed by Apoorva Lakhia.

Apparently  some members of  the Dawood family dropped in unannounced to meet the ‘reel’ Haseena Parkar.

Says a source from Lakhia’s crew, “There were Haseena Parkar’s three children AlishahUmeria  and Khushiyan  and Haseena’s brother Sameer Antulay. Initially Shradha and the rest of the cast including Siddharth Kapoor who plays her brother Dawood, and Ankur Bhatia who plays Haseen’s husband, were alarmed. But then the atmosphere softened. The tension dissolved.”

Apparently Haseena’s family liked what they saw.

Says  the  source, “Haseena Parkar’s children and brother fell in love with the way the  film was being shot.They had come prepared for the eventuality of falling in love with the film .They had gotten along the real Haseena’s personal belongings, her reading glasses, nose ring and her favourite lipstick which they presented to Shradha.”

Ankur Bhatia who plays Shradha’s husband says, “It was an  amazing experience for me to meet HaseenaParkar’s children. I had not met them before. They showed me some old photos of their  father and gave me tips which will be really useful to play Haseena’s husband.”
