Lauding the actress, the filmmaker said Shraddha was happy to put on weight in order to play older Haseena in the film.

“Shraddha was quite happy while putting on weight to play the older Haseena as she could thumb her nose at her diet and eat whatever she wanted. And I must say this — the amount of food that she can put away is totally awesome! I have never seen any girl who can eat as much as Shraddha can!," Apoorva Lakhia was quoted as saying to a leading daily.

Meanwhile, Shraddha spoke about portraying a negative character,: "I think this character is not in the negative space. It's a real life character about which there are lots of theories and guessing, but not many people know about her life. So I feel it's a true story of a woman who faced a lot in her life and dealt with some challenging circumstances”, the actress said.

On the career front, Shraddha Kapoor will also be seen with Baahubali star Prabhas in Saaho and, she also has Saina Nehwal biopic in her kitty.
