Azharuddin trains Emraan for biopic Azhar

By The Assam Tribune

MUMBAI, May 22 (IANS): Former Indian cricket captain Mohammad Azharuddin finds Emraan Hashmi as the perfect fit to portray him in his biopic Azhar, while the actor says the cricketer is helping him learn the nuances of the game.

�Emraan is very apt for the role. He has worked very hard. A lot of people asked me �Why Emraan is doing my role in the film?� But Emraan is my favourite,� Azharuddin said here at the teaser launch of the biopic.

�I have watched almost all his films, and I think he is apt for the role. After this film, he will be called Azhar most of the times,� he added. Directed by Tony D�Souza and produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and MSM Motion Pictures, Azhar will be on the life of Azharuddin, who led the Indian cricket team for most of the 1990s. He was implicated in a match-fixing scandal in 2000, and banned for life. But later in 2012, the Andhra Pradesh High Court lifted the ban.
