Shoot for ‘Azhar’ takes Emraan to London

Mumbai, Aug 9 (IANS) Emraan Hashmi is off to London to shoot for his forthcoming film “Azhar” in which he will reprise former Indian cricket captain Mohammad Azharuddin for the silver screen.

The actor, who had trouble adapting to a chilly London, has pinned his hopes of completing the one-month long shooting schedule in balmy weather.

“The Dirty Picture” star took to micro-blogging website Twitter to talk about the London weather.

“Thankfully Mercury’s rising here in London… can’t handle shooting in the cold… brrrrrr… a month more to go… hope it stays that way,” Emraan shared.

Directed by Tony D’Souza and produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and MSM Motion Pictures, “Azhar” is slated for worldwide release on May 13, 2016.

The film will narrate the highs and lows of Azharuddin’s life as the captain of the Indian cricket team for most of the 1990s and being tainted by a match-fixing scandal in 2000, and banned for life.

The Andhra Pradesh High Court lifted the ban in 2012.

The film also stars Lara Dutta, Huma Qureshi and Prachi Desai in pivotal roles.
