Move over the aggressive and “nautanki” winner of Bigg Boss. It’s time to meet the classy, sophisticated and flamboyant Gautam Gulati! Oh yes, the moment that every fan had been waiting for is here- the first look of the favorite Gautam Gulati from his debut flick ‘Azhar’ is out and boy, it looks promising.
Modeled around Ravi Shastri, he would be seen playing the role of Ravish- a cricketer turned commentator. Speaking about his role, Gulati said that he took a two-month workshop to prepare for his role, “You'll see me doing a lot of commentary, so besides the reading sessions I watched a lot of commentating videos as part of the prep. Cricket commentary is not an easy job, it requires presence of mind and impromptu lines. It was great fun.”
While the on-field chemistry between Mohammad Azharuddin (on whom the biopic is based) and Ravi Shastri is known to all, Gautam even spoke about his off-screen chemistry with Emraan Hashmi (who would be playing Azhar). He stated that during the shoot of a pool scene, Emraan complimented the trailer of his show ‘MTV Big F’ (in which Gautam is seen kissing a model), to which the young actor replied “Sir aap se hi seekha hai”.
Well, now here’s another reason to watch ‘Azhar’ which releases in May.
