Siddhanth Kapoor is all set to share screen space with his
sister Shraddha for the first time in Apoorva Lakhia's gangster
flick Haseena: The Queen Of Mumbai.
While Shraddha's first look from the film has already been
garnering appreciation from all the corners, her brother too has
undergone some jaw-dropping transformation to play the dreaded
gangster Dawood Ibrahim in the film.
He recently shared a sneak-peek of his character from the movie
and boy, his deadly avatar surely takes you by surprise. Check it
He gave an insight about his role while talking to a leading
daily. He was quoted saying, "I play Dawood Ibrahim in the film and
did lots of research - went to Dubai - and on the internet. I spoke
to writer Hussain Zaidi who helped me with a lot of inputs, and I
also met a few of Haseena aapa's family members."
When asked about how he got into the skin of his character he
said, "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 Sir said
if I didn't put on 9-10 kgs he would not take me in the film
(laughs), but it all worked out really well."
He said, "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. "
He added, "Sticking to this character and holding on to it,
especially when we had a break in the middle, was tough."
Siddhant further added that he could never imagine that he and
Shraddha would act in a film as brother and sister.
