5 Reasons Why We Are Excited For Azhar

One of the most anticipated films of the year, Azhar, released it’s trailer this week and it has only added to our excitement. Based on the rise and downfall of one of the most controversial Indian cricket captains, Mohammad Azharuddin, the trailer gives us a sneak peek in the disputed life of this cricketer and the actor’s looks in the movie. Azharuddin, played by Emraan Hashmi has surprised us with his acting prowess in this two-minute trailer, which is filled with romance, drama, controversies and nail-biting cricket matches.

Here are 5 reasons why we are cannot wait for his movie, which seems like it’s going to be a direct hit over the boundary.

Emraan Hashmi as Mohammad Azharuddin
The trailer gives us a glimpse of Hashmi as Azharuddin and we must say, it looks like he has managed to get under the cricketer’s skin and portray him with much finesse. We are stoked to see Hashmi in a different avatar, apart from his usual romantic roles.

Nargis sizzles as Sangeeta Bijlani
Nargis Fakhri plays the renowned Bollywood actress and model Sangeeta Bijlani, who was Azharuddin’s former wife. The trailer also gives us Bijlani’s song ‘Oye Oye’ in the background music and we are hoping to see Nargis give her twist to this classic song.

Match-fixing scandal
We all know that Mohammad Azharuddin was accused, found guilty of match fixing and banned from participating in cricket. The ban was later lifted and the film gives us an insider’s view of how the scandal unfolded which makes it a must-watch for every cricket lover.

Prachi Desai
We last saw Prachi Desai and Emraan Hashmi romancing in Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai, in which their chemistry received a huge thumbs-up. We are excited to see them both sharing the screen together again as Desai plays the role of Azharuddin’s first wife, Noureen.

We love, we love Gauti!
Gautam Gulati who was last seen in the reality television show Bigg Boss, managed to win people’s hearts with his antics. We will have to wait and watch if he can do the same with his acting skills, as we catch a glimpse of him playing cricketer Ravi Shastri in the trailer. 

After watching this action-packed trailer, are you as excited as us for Azhar, which promises to reveal cricket’s dark and dirty secrets? Let us know.
