The makers of ‘Haseena: The Queen of Mumbai’ have released pictures of Siddhant Kapoor – who plays the role of Dawood Ibrahim in the upcoming film which features his real-life sister Shraddha Kapoor as Haseena Parkar.
The actor’s transformation is what the picture – which was released on his Instagram page – reveals.
Talking about his transformation, the actor said he had to put on 9 kilos of weight for the role
“I had to put on nine kilos for the film though there was lot of prosthetics and body suits involved. I just ate a lot of cheese, burgers and chocolates at night to put on weight, Apoorva (Lakhia – director) Sir said if I didn’t put on 9-10 kgs he would not take me in the film, but it all worked out really well.”
“The tougher part was to lose weight to look in my 20s. For some scenes where I had to put silicon in my mouth and talking was tough. So, I had to get into the vibe of a 40-year-old bhai and then reverse it and get more and more younger. Sticking to this character and holding on to it, especially when we had a break in the middle, was tough” he said.
Haseena: The Queen of Mumbai releases in theatres on July 14 2017.
