Emraan Hashmi- “I had lot to learn in cricket”

News Helpline | May, 22 2015

Emraan Hashmi is currently geared up to play the role of former Iconic and controversial Indian skipper Mohammad Azharuddin in a biopic, getting his cricketing style right is a big challenge. The biopic, titled Azhar, traces the highs and lows in the life of Azharuddin.

Emraan, Mohammad Azharuddin and Ekta Kapoor launched the teaser and first look of the movie. 

"There are many challenges like cricketing style, which is very unconventional, I am an average gully cricketer. But when Azhar bhai came and taught me, I realised I had lot to learn in cricket. Hopefully I have got it better over the last three months," the Jannat actor said.

After initial hiccups Emraan took help from Azhar, on batting and field presence, and now he can get all his shots right.

"I was having no connection with the ball... He showed me the technique. I froze for couple of seconds. I felt blessed to be trained by the best batsman. It is a dream come true for me," he added.

Mohammad Azharuddin is married to former Actress Sangeeta Bijlani, who dated Salman Khan for a long time. So will there be any Salman angle in the movie?

"Can anyone play Salman khan, he can only right? There can be no Salman Khan angle in this film. Nobody can play him" says Ekta Kapoor.

The film, produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and MSM motion pictures, is expected to hit the screens on May 13, 2016.
