Mumbai, April, 10 (CINEWS): On-screen character Emraan Hashmi, who plays previous Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin in forthcoming biopic Azhar, says the motion picture talks about the issue of match-settling in cricket like it has never been appeared on the silver screen some time recently.
Hashmi says the part was trying as the motion picture accounts the previous Indian captain’s interpretation of match-altering embarrassment.
On November 27, 2000, Azharuddin was discovered blameworthy of match-settling, and following eight days the previous cricketer-lawmaker was banned from the diversion for life by BCCI. In 2012, the Andhra Pradesh High Court lifted the boycott.
“When we watch a match, we are just mindful of what is occurring on the field. No one realizes what happens in the locker rooms, inns, hallways discussions of cricketers and their connections. How they get into match-altering outrages? He has given us a great deal of stuff, which we didn’t know prior, for this film,” Hashmi said.
The on-screen character said Azharuddin shared every one of the stories identified with his own and expert life in Azhar.
“He was exceptionally forthcoming with us. He is a genuine individual. He has given all of us the stories about his life.”
The Humari Adhuri Kahani star, who had prior played a bookie in Jannat, said he needed to experience a considerable measure of preparing to play the cricketer.
“Part of exploration work went into it, right from meeting the man himself for a considerable length of time and months when he was in Mumbai. I have never done a film where I needed to do this sort of exploration.
“We, by and large, don’t do such movies in Bollywood. In this film, we are portraying the narrative of a man, who is alive. He will judge you brutally in the wake of seeing the deciding result.”
Not a cricket lover, Hashmi has now built up an enthusiasm for the amusement as he comprehends it in fact.
“I didn’t have any specialized abilities. I showed signs of improvement after this. I needed to play like him, copy him… Thus, there was a great deal of practice.
Coordinated by Tony D’Souza, Azhar depends on the understood and exceedingly discussed episodes and certainties of the cricketer’s life. The film is discharging on May 13.”
