Is Nargis Fakhri Going to Play Sangeeta Bijlani in Biopic on Azharuddin
Director Tony D`Souza’s upcoming film is a biopic on the life and career of Mohamed Azharuddin-one of the most stylish cricket captains of Indian cricketing history. The film has Emraan Hashmi playing the role of Azharuddin and the character of his glamorous second wife Sangeetha Bijlani is being offered to hot beauty Nargis Fakhri. Kareena Kapoor was earlier considered for the role but she could not commit due to date issues. A confirmation from Nargis is being awaited as she is currently away shooting. Azhar’s first wife’s Naureen’s character would be played by Prachi Desai. It’s reported that Enraan Hashmi had been practicing a lot for getting the perfect wrist batting strokes that Azhar is known to play-and had also got injured after practicing with almost 3-400 balls per day. The movie is being produced by Ektaa Kapoor and is currently in production. This film would be the third major biopic in Bollywood, after successful films on Olympic boxing medal winner Mary Kom and hockey legend Milkha Singh.
