Actress Shraddha Kapoorhas tried to break her girl-next-door image with her next film ‘Haseena: The Queen of Mumbai’. She hopes people will see her conscious effort of playing something different on screen. “I think it’s one of most different roles of my career so far for sure because I think I have played more positive characters, and this is first character which is more grey shaded. I hope people can see (my) conscious effort of playing something different,” Shraddha said in an interview. ‘Haseena: The Queen of Mumbai’ is a biopic, where Shraddha is essaying the role of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parkar. The film is directed by Apoorva Lakhia and Shraddha’s brother Siddhanth Kapoor will play the notorious gangster Dawood Ibrahim in the biopic.   Shraddha, who has also been roped in to play badminton champion Saina Nehwalin a biopic, says that project too is a part of her pursuit to maintain a variety in her filmography.  “I just wanted to do something different. I felt like I wanted to venture into new kinds of films, and be a part of different kind of characters. That’s why I decided to be a part of films like ‘Haseena’ and the Saina Nehwal biopic,” she added.  Giving more details about the biopic, she said: “I think it’s a very big opportunity for me to play a sportswoman who has been a former champion. It’s a huge responsibility, so I really hope that once the movie is out, people get inspired when they watch the movie.”  “We have not started shooting for it and I am still preparing for the role. There is a long way to go. I hope I can do justice to her,” she added.  The actress, who made her Bollywood debut in 2010 with ‘Teen Patti’, went on to do roles in films like ‘Aashiqui 2’, ‘Ek Villain’ and ‘Haider’.  Asked about her evolution as an actor, Shraddha said: “That is something that the audience has to decide… How they see my progress. I just like to try and do better than what I have done before.”  The actress says she is not affected by the ups and downs of life as she feels it is a ‘part of every kind of profession’.   Daughter of veteran actor Shakti Kapoor, Shraddha says that she looks to her father for advice, but his only suggestion to her is to always do what she wants to and to pursue what makes her happy.  The Times of  India : 8th.
