How exciting. The vehicle has completely died and there's water all over the place” said Madhavan in the video.

“Tere Bina” from Haseena releases
Director Apoorva Lakhia unveiled a romantic track Tere Bina from the film Hasina Parker and the director says that it was a deliberate decision to launch a romantic song first.
“By the trailer one might feel that it is a violent film but that’s not the case. Haseena was married to her elder brother’s best friend, Ibrahim, who used to run a restaurant and in his free time used to do stunt in films. She got married at young age and they had four children. She had a beautiful marriage and was madly in love with her husband, who she lost at a young age. This song is apt to show her softer side to the world,” said Lakhia.
Apoorva thinks Haseena had a tragic life and that hardened her. The film is set to release on September 22.
