Emraan Hashmi Opens Up About What Went Wrong With 'Azhar' And Why You Can't Compare It With M.S.Dhoni Film!
While Emraan Hashmi's performance as Azhar was quite appreciated, the film failed to work wonders at the box office. In an interview to Filmfare the actor opened up about what went wrong with Azhar and why Sushant Singh Rajput's M.S.Dhoni biopic shouldn't be compared with the film.

Emraan was quoted saying, "The media clearly questioned whether Azhar was about a fallen hero, who rises from the ashes. Cricketer Azharuddin might have been vindicated by the court and given the clean chit but the perception of the public and his fans is quite different. For most he still appears as a person who sold the team out. Whereas we went with the clear thought that because he has been vindicated by the court, we have to make him a hero eventually. Unfortunately, a major chunk of population didn’t want see him that way because they believed otherwise. They said, ‘Oh this is a gross misinterpretation of what we see as his life’. They regard Azhar as a controversial guy and they see him in a grey zone. The end was something people didn’t expect. So either the film shouldn’t have been made or then it should have been based on how people analyse his life.”

When asked if 'Azhar' will be compared to 'M.S.Dhoni: The Untold Story' he added, "I haven’t followed Dhoni’s life much. I see Azhar and Dhoni as two different individuals. One is perceived as a ‘fallen hero’ and the other is a star and worshipped as an idol. The two can’t be compared. A large section of the audience falls between the age group of 15 – 35. That category of the audience couldn’t relate to Azhar because they have not grown up watching him. The same section of the audience has watched Dhoni play and are familiar with his career. So, somewhere the Dhoni film has an edge.”

Emraan will be next seen in 'Raaz Reboot' which is slated to release on 16th September.
