Last seen in Varun Dhawan's 'Main Tera Hero', rumour mills have it that Nargis Fakhri has been approached to play the role of Sangeeta Bijlani in an upcoming biopic on former cricketer Mohammed Azharuddin.
The film which will be directed by Anthony D'Souza has Emraan Hashmi essaying the title role. Prachi Desai has been roped in to play his first wife, Naureen.
A source said, ""The producers have already had a meeting with Nargis and the modalities are being worked out. As she is slated to travel for the promotions of her Hollywood film 'Spy', things will be finalised only on her return."
The source further adds, "Nargis began her career with modelling just like Bijlani, so the makers feel she lends herself to the glamorous role."
Ever since the makers announced this biopic, there were several speculations about who will play Azhar's second wife. Initially there was buzz that Kareena Kapoor Khan has been approached. Later several names like Jacqueline Fernandez, Kriti Sanon did rounds. But it all turned out to be rumours.
There has been no official announcement yet.
