Shraddha Kapoor said she was both nervous and excited about playing on screen sister to her real-life brother Siddhanth Kapoor, in the biopic of Haseena, underworld don Dawood Ibrahim's sister. However, on Tuesday, Twitter woke up to a new poster of Siddhanth, starring as both the younger and older versions of Dawood, as will be seen in Haseena: The Queen Of Mumbai. Siddhanth looked frighteningly deadly as he features with grim expressions on his face - the middle-aged Dawood looks a lot more lethal, BTW. "So proud to introduce my real and reel life brother. Introducing bhai, younger and older," wrote the 30-year-old actress, who had also introduced the first look of her brother earlier. This is the first time Shraddha and Siddhanth will co-star in a film.
Siddhanth's poster has the exact setting and is reminiscent of Shraddha's, which featured the dual looks of the actress as Haseena. While sharing, Shraddha thanked director Apoorva Lakhia for making her a significant part of the film. "Thank you, Apoorva Lakhia for giving me the opportunity to play this character and for holding my hand through out," read Shraddha's tweet.
Meanwhile, Shraddha hopes that her real-life rapport with Siddhanth also reflects on the big screen. "I am very excited and nervous because I've been thinking if I have to do a scene with him, I've to forget that he is my bhaiya. He is the character in the film who is also my brother. But ultimately I think it'll help that we are brothers and sisters. I hope that bond translates on screen," she told news agency PTI.
Shraddha and her bother Siddhanth will share screen space with 3 Idiots star Sharman Joshi and also New York-based Indian actor Ankur Bhatia in the biopic. Ankur has been cast to play the role of Haseena's husband.
Haseena: The Queen Of Mumbai will arrive at theatres on July 14.
