Actor Emraan Hashmi, who was shooting for his upcoming film Azhar, came to his co-star Nargis Fakhri’s rescue by confronting a person who was constantly clicking pictures and recording videos of Nargis.
While Nargis was shooting for a sequence with Emraan, several spectators gathered to see the shoot. However one person constantly kept clicking pictures and recording videos of Nargis, making her very uncomfortable. Emraan noticed it, and confronted the individual.
“When someone constantly records you, you feel conscious. The person cannot be ignored, I tried to signal the man requesting him not to record or shoot me, but he paid no heed. Despite unit assistants also asking him to stop, he kept at it. Then Emraan went up to him, took him aside and gave him a piece of his mind. I don’t know what Emraan said but the man left from there immediately.” Nargis described the incident.
On asking Emraan about the incident, he said, “I do understand that fans display their love and affection in many ways and I appreciate that. However, this particular gentleman overstepped his boundary. So, I had to intervene and ask him to leave, before we took strict action against him,’’
Emraan Hashmi plays Mohammad Azharuddin while Nargis Fakhri plays Sangeeta Bijlani, the second wife of Azharuddin.
Directed by Tony D’souza, Azhar is based on the life and times of the Indian cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin, which also stars Prachi Desai and Lara Dutta with others. The film is slated to release on May 13.
