Priyanka Sethia, best recalled as Jameela from director Srijit Mukherjee’s ‘Begum Jaan’, will now be seen as advocate Roshni Satam in Apoorva Lakhia’s upcoming biopic, ‘Haseena Parkar’, headlined by Shraddha Kapoor. The former air-hostess has toiled to make in-roads in the industry. Speaking about her role in the movie biography of gang leader Haseena Parkar, Priyanka says, “I went to the courts and saw the process to prepare for my role. I read up about Haseena on the internet and researched her case thoroughly. I also read about all the other cases that the lawyer I play has fought. Courtroom dramas and movies revolving around legal cases also came in handy.”
Priyanka quit her ‘high-flying’ profession and took up theatre after which, she landed director Vibhu Puri’s Hawaizaada. A few years later, she was seen in ‘Begum Jaan’ and will now be seen in a mafia queen’s biopic. Apart from that, she will also be seen in The Field with Hollywood actor Brendan Fraser. The actress juggles movies with theatre to ensure she doesn’t lose the edge in her performances.
