Starting with the physical transformation she had undergone, the ‘Rock On!! 2’ star told during the trailer launch event here, “I had put on near to nine kilos for the role and now I am in the process of losing that weight.”

Adding, “As an actor it has been an interesting and emotionally challenging experience.”

When she was further asked about the concept of racism being prevalent in Bollywood, the actress replied, “My definition of beauty is very different. I believe beauty is entirely skin deep. You can come from any background, you can have any ethnicity, you can have any skin colour. I feel, true beauty radiates from within. Of course, in our society there are pressures, but that’s not only prevalent in film industry. Things tend to get highlighted because our society (film industry) is in the limelight. There are pressures in many different ways. All that is important is how you deal with it. “

In the two-minute trailer of Haseena Parkar, Shraddha looks gritty and scary and way too convincing. With voice modulation and look transformation, seems like the 30-year-old actress has done complete justice to the character.

The movie features Haseena Parkar’s journey from age 17 to 40 and her transformation from a young girl to Aapa.

Shraddha’s brother Siddhanth Kapoor plays the role of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, accused of the 1993 Mumbai blasts, in which hundreds of people lost their lives.

She also said, “Dad is the biggest critic in the house. When he saw the trailer, he said ‘Hit hai’.”

The trailer shows the struggle Haseena underwent after Dawood Ibrahim was accused in the Mumbai blasts.

The Apoorva Lakhia directed film, which also stars Rajesh Tailang, Ankur Bhatia and Sunil Upadhyay, is all set to hit the theatres on August 18.
