Emraan Hashmi’s much anticipated film Azhar has finally released today. The movie which also stars actresses Prachi Desai and Nargis Fakhri is a sports drama on ace cricketer Mohammad Azharruddin. Lara Dutta and Gautam Gulati will also be seen in pivotal roles.
Starring the brilliant Emraan Hashmi, one can expect some captivating acting performances from this film. While the match-fixing angle that will be showcased in the film has already piqued interest, it’s Azhar’s personal life and his hitherto undiscussed affair and subsequent marriage to Sangeeta Bijalani that viewers will be more eagerly looking forward to watch. And with serial kisser Emraan Hashmi and siren Nargis Fakhri playing Azhar and Sangeeta respectively it won’t be too wrong to hazard a guess that chemistry would be at its sizzling best.
Emraan Hashmi said, “It’s not an erotic film. You can’t bracket it with Murder. Yes, there are kisses but we haven’t gone all out because it is not that kind of film. This film is predominantly about the court case, match-fixing, cricket world. Stories of cricket that we have unheard of and narrated by the man himself. And then there are stories about his relationships. Like you saw in trailer, this is the story of a man and his relationship with his God, two wives and three match fixing allegations. So predominantly it’s about those allegations and other things come in the sub-plot.”
The film has been directed by Tony D’Souza.
