Emraan Hashmi: Playing Azhar is a huge responsibility

Emraan Hashmi will be seen playing the former cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin in the biopic 'Azhar' helmed by Tony D'Souza. Recently, the first look of the film was released which received a thumbs up from the audience. However, Emraan says that he has a long way to go.


He says, "Playing Azhar is a huge responsibility. There is still a lot of work left — about 100 days of shoot, but I am not nervous. I am uncomfortable with praise and I thrive on criticism so I am not feeling any pressure. But when I met Azhar for the first time, it was surreal. When he held my hand to teach me to swing the bat in his trademark style, I was ecstatic. It was special because he is someone I have admired all my life. But I guess we as actors have the advantage of ‘action’ and ‘cut’- something that they didn’t have in real life. But I have a long way to go until I can play like him."


Emraan has been training with Azhar and is currently learning the finer nuances of the game from him. He further adds, “My game has improved quite a bit since he taught me to play. I started training in January and now, I am much better. At least that’s what Azhar thinks."


'Azhar' produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and and MSM Motion Pictures, is slated to hit the big screen on 13th May, 2016.
