The promotion and marketing of Kabir Khan’s Tubelight, and now, Apoorva Lakhia’s Haseena Parkar offer a refreshing visual and emotional change from the norm. We see the two film’s protagonists, Salman Khan and Shraddha Kapoor, sharing the platform with their siblings, Sohail and Siddhanth, respectively.
Apparently, Salman has made it clear to the team that he will have his brother Sohail by his side for all the promotional events of Tubelight. And now, Shraddha Kapoor has gone a step further to ensure that her brother gets the due attention on all public platforms, promoting their new film together.
Says a source, “Promote karna toh hai saath mein. Shraddha also insists that her brother Siddhanth gets top billing along with her in the credit titles. Her brother is still waiting for success. Though Shraddha plays the titular role in Haseena Parkar, she sees this film as her brother’s big chance to make it.”
And the protective sister won’t leave any stone unturned to ensure just that.
Says the source, “Shraddha will be accompanied by Siddhanth at all the events promoting Haseena Parkar. Throughout the film, she was guiding his performance, staying on the sets even when he was shooting solo to offer support. She would rehearse their scenes together for hours and ensure that he gets enough opportunity to be effective on camera. The actress is determined to see her brother make it big with this film, even if she has to take the backseat.”
A very closely-knit family, the Kapoors are anxious about the son’s career. But with a star-sister like Shradha around, things get just that bit easy for the kid-brother.
