Iqbal Kaskar, whose alleged involvement in several cases, was recently taken down by the police officials in Thane [outskirts of Mumbai] at Parkar’s residence. On the other hand, the film Haseena Parkar based on the life journey of Dawood Ibrahim and his sister is already facing a few troubles and this arrest has now been linked to the film.
The timely arrest of Iqbal Kaskar has raised several suspicions in the minds of police authorities with one of them being his involvement with the film Haseena Parkar featuring Shraddha Kapoor in the lead role. Reportedly, the police suspects Kaskar of funding for the film Haseena Parkar which is based on one of his siblings.
The gangster is accused of running his D-Company from Parkar’s home in Nagpada after her death.Incidentally, last November members of Dawood’s family visited Shraddha Kapoor on the sets of Haseena, ostensibly to check on how the reel character was shaping up.
About her role in the film, Shraddha had told that, “Being the sister of the most wanted person, Haseena has gone through a lot and so it became very challenging for me as an actor to portray her character onscreen”
She also said that the director spent time with Dawood Ibrahim’s sister before the film went on floors. “He prepped for the film for about 2 years and also spent time with Haseena Parkar and that in itself was helpful for all of us because he was too close to film and her story”
