Shraddha Kapoor has shared the first glimpse of her upcoming film, Haseena- The Queen of Mumbai.

Her look in the poster is extremely fearless and bold, and you instantly forget how you have seen her in Bollywood so far.
Shraddha’s role will showcase the life of Haseena from the age of 17 to 40. And if there is one thing that Shraddha regrets about her role, it is the chance of not having met Haseena herself who passed away in 2014. Earlier, she spoke about how she hopes to be convincing with this film and character.
The actor — who recently appeared in Mani Ratnam’s Ok Kanmani’s Hindi remake, Ok Jaanu, along with Aditya Roy Kapur — said, “I am excited but I am more nervous as I play from the age of 17 to 43 so that whole character graph is there. The character is going to be difficult. I hope I’m convincing.”
Talking about the kind of music the film will have, musical duo Sachin-Jigar said, “The film pans across a certain period and the brief was to cater to that era but not making it sound (out) dated. We are just retaining the vibe of the era but keeping the lyrics and the sound more new age.”
