Emraan Hashmi wants to do more biopics


Emraan Hashmi - Azhar 340x

Emraan Hashmi plays the role of legendary cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin in the upcoming biopic ‘Azhar’. The actor has trained extensively to get Azharuddin’s signature moves right, with none other than the former Indian skipper, for his part in the movie.

Some of the cricketer’s traits and quirks stayed with Hashmi for a long time even after the film was done. He told PTI, “Some of his mannerisms lingered on to my next film Raaz 4. I did face slight problem while shooting for my next and my director would keep telling me ��� ‘Please get out of Azhar right now’. I had copied his style for so long. The small things he does like he shakes his head, his gait, walking like him with one shoulder up, head tilted on one side. I would constantly do that on the sets and it consciously became part of my style when I was playing the other character. It took me some time to get out of Azhar.”

He continues, “It is not focussed in the film. Probably you won’t see that in the film as we didn’t want to take your attention to small specific things. There were other things that I had to imbibe like the way he eats. Azhar bhai has a very peculiar way of eating with his fork and spoon. We took videos when we would go out for dinner together to record the way he is eating.”

He also admitted that shooting for the biopic was a very satisfying and fulfilling journey. “So much so that now I want to do more of such films that draw from reality and demand the kind of work and research we put in as compared to fictional films,” he concludes.

‘Azhar’ is scheduled to release on 13th May.
