First Look: Emraan Hashmi in and as ‘Azhar’


The first look of one of the most awaited films of 2016 ‘Azhar’ was released and we bet that the first look will surprise you. Emraan Hashmi essaying the role of former skipper Mohammed Azharuddin looks very similar to the former Indian cricketer. The poster is from Azhar’s early days.

The actor will share the same image with Azharuddin online on his birthday.

An insider says, “Emraan specially shot for this photo, which is inspired by Azhar’s early days, when he made his debut as a Test cricketer in the ’80s. He wants to show this picture to the cricketer to thank him for all the help and support he has provided him, and for all that the actor has learnt from him.”

The biopic will not only portray Azharuddin’s cricketing career and match-fixing controversy, but will also bring to the screen his personal life which was mired in affairs, divorce and remarriage.

Sony Pictures Networks & Balaji Motion Pictures’ Azhar is scheduled to release 13th May 2016.
