Emraan bonds with Azharuddin at the latter's biopic press con

  • It was the meeting of reel life and real life at the press conference for the announcement of the film Azhar. The press con witnessed actor Emraan Hashmi and ex-cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin sharing the same platform. Emraan tried to match the style of the former cricket captain by raising his collar which only evoked a smile in the ex-cricketer. The film is a biopic on Azharuddin and will talk about the turbulent life of the cricketer both on and off the field.

  • Apart from Azhar, next year the viewers will also get to see the biopic of MS Dhoni. The film is currently in its pre-production stage and will feature actor Sushant Singh Rajput in the title tole. Dhoni will be directed by Neeraj Pandey of Baby and A Wednesday fame. It was interesting to know that Emraan was clueless about the film on Dhoni considering the fact that it's one of the most awaited films.

  • Needless to say media will keep a close vigil on any development of the film. We only hope that director Anthony D’Souza is able to translate his vision of Azhar on screen and not deliver a dud like his previous films.
