It is a well-known fact that Shraddha Kapoor will be seen essaying the role of gangster Haseena Parkar in Apoorva Lakhia‘s Haseena and it seems that dimpled dame Deepika Padukone too has been inspired by Shraddha.
Padukone, who had played a feisty warrior-princess in Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s Bajirao Mastani, is all set to unleash her vengeful side in Vishal Bhardwaj‘s next, which is based on the life of Rahima Khan alias Sapna Didi.
For those who do not know this, Sapna Didi had planned Dawood’s execution during a cricket match in Sharjah to avenge her husband’s death. Unfortunately for her, he got wind of her plans and killed her days before she could get to him. Not only this, we have also heard that Dippy will share screen space with her Piku co-star Irrfan Khan in this film, which is expected to go on floors this year end.
Apparently, the movie is adapted from a short story from the book Mafia Queens of Mumbai by former crime reporter Hussain Zaidi.
