Emraan Hashmi to play Azharuddin in under production film



After South Indian bombshell Silk Smitha and boxer Mary Kom among others, a biopic on former Indian cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin is under production.

Azhar’s life is filled in with a lot of spice such as affairs, marriage and match fixing scandal. The former Indian skipper recently revealed that he had no issues from filmmakers incorporating the important aspects of his life.

The Congress leader said, “The three important phases of my life will be seen in the film. They will be showing all the phases correctly. If I had an objection I wouldn’t have said yes.”

The producer of the flick, Ekta Kapoor, added, “In a biopic, personal life is as important as professional. We will have three aspects of his life — khuda, shaadi and the match-fixing case.”

Azharuddin did not comment much about the scandal but said, “Once you see the film you will get the right perspective.”

He was also in news for his affair with former Bollywood actress Sangeeta Bijlani whom he later married after divorcing his first wife Naureen.

He also confessed that he is a big fan of Emraan Hashmi, who is portraying his character and said that he is ‘apt’ for this role. The movie is slated for release on May 13 next year.
