The first look of Ektaa Kapoor’s eagerly awaited film Azhar has been released recently with the tagline “Ek Khuda, Do Shaadi Aur Match Fixing”, and this relates to all the controversy regarding Azhar’s religious side and love for the game as well as his second marriage to Sangetha Bijlani and his role in the match fixing scandal. The first look had Emraan looking perfectly in sync with Azhar’s mannerisms and body language and his distinct behavior.
Now, it’s reported that Gautam Gulati (Big Boss) fame would be playing the role of Ravi Shastri in the movie. Ravi Shastri was considered to be very close to Azhar and the movie would also have a prominent role for the character. Seem Gautam did practice very hard to get the perfect look for the character and we hope to see more of him in the future trailers.
Azhar stars Prachi Desai and Nimrat Kaur, and is being directed by Anthony D’Souza. It’s scheduled to be released by May 2106.
