New York-based Indian actor Ankur Bhatia, who portrayed Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s husband in the biopic Sarbjit, is all set to play Shraddha Kapoor’s husband, Ibrahim in the upcoming Apoorva Lakhia’s flick Hasina. Apoorva Lakhia’s Hasina, which is also a biopic, is based on the life of Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Hasina Parkar.
Interestingly, both the films of Ankur Bhatia are biopic’s. While Sarabjit was the story of Dalbir Kaur, the elder sister of Sarabjit Singh, who fought a long legal battle for the release of her brother from a Pakistani jail, Hasina is the story of Hasina Parkar, sister of Dawood Ibrahim.
As for the reports, the actor first met Apoorva Lakhia at a film festival in New York where Shootout At Lokhandwala was screened and kept in touch since then. Apparently, the director liked his work in Sarbjit, and that’s how he was picked for the role of Ibrahim.
