‘Rockstar’ girl Nargis Fakhri is the chosen one. She will be seen playing former Indian cricketer Mohammed Azharuddin's second wife Sangeeta Bijlani in upcoming biopic ‘Azhar’.
The 'Main Tera Hero' actress will be romancing Emraan Hashmi, who is playing the lead role of the former cricketer. A source was quoted as saying, "We have locked Nargis to play Sangeeta Bijlani in the film. She fit the bill in terms of looks, style and glamour. We did the look test with her. She is a talented actress and we are glad to have her on board." Earlier the likes of Kareena Kapoor Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez were shortlisted for the role but things didn’t work out with them.
Besides Nargis, there is Prachi Desai playing the role of Mohammed Azharuddin’s first wife in the film. ‘Azhar’ will trace the journey of Azharuddin's career and his personal life, which have witnessed many ups and down.
The film is likely to go on floors next month.
