The fearless cricketer from Hyderabad who was one of the finest finds of the sport in the nation, Azharuddin had a very special talent of keeping the viewers on heels when batting. It is fitting that his biopic will be starring Emran Hashmi who himself likes to keep the people guessing all throughout his movie.

The movie will be directed by Anthony D’Souza whose last film Boss starred Akshay Kumar. The first poster of the movie named ‘Azhar’ created a lot of hype on the internet. This film shows the viewers a peek into the sporting life of the ex-Indian captain who had a career that swung to the extremes. The director said that the movie would be gripping because of the experiences of the man in his career.

As far as the cast of the movie goes, the picture which is at a production stage will have Emraan Hashmi playing Azharuddin. However the role of the female lead Sangeetha Bijlani, the second wife of Azhar in the film is not yet finalized and rumors say that Nargiz Fakri is closing in on the role but not before rumors of Kareena playing the role sprung up. Prachi Desai however has already been chosen to play the role of the stars first wife.

The movie which is under the Balaji Banner excited Mahesh Bhatt who took it to twitter to show that he loved Emraan’s role in the movie and that he is looking forward to watch it entirely. Emraan will be hoping to make an impact on the Box office with this movie especially after the disappointment of MR.X financially.
