‘Azhar’, the biopic on cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin is gearing up for his release next month, and director Tony D’Souza admits that Azharuddin is fully supporting them even though they haven’t done a faithful rendering of his life.
As according to the Deccan Chronicle, D’Souza said, “I needed to tell a story that would connect with the maximum number of people. So without tampering with facts or twisting them, we’ve tried to tell a dramatic story-but with plenty of twists and turns. Azhar has been an amazing support. He has been with us from the start. He allowed Emraan to observe him and his cricketing moves. Now when the film is about to be released, Azhar is ready to walk that extra mile with us. This, in spite of the fact that we haven’t done��a faithful rendering of his life story? Who does that?”
The film is slated for a 13th May release.
