As reported by��BizAsia earlier this year, Emraan Hashmi has been undergoing training to prepare for his role in Ekta Kapoor’s biopic on the life of famous cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin. ��Though it was already known that Azharuddin has personally been helping Hashmi to train for the role, it has now been heard that the cricket also gave Hashmi his own cricket bat to use for the film.
“Emraan and Azhar were practising and the former cricketer had got his bat with him. ��They both felt that using the same bat during the shoot would look more authentic… ��The unit has been asked to take extra care of the bat so that it is not misplaced or damaged in any manner. ��They all know how attached the cricketer is to his personal belonging with which he has played several games for the country,” a source revealed to��Hindustan Times.
The film is to be��directed by Anthony D’Souza and also stars Prachi Desai. ��While there has been much speculation as to who will be joining the cast, to play the role of Sangeeta Bijlani, there has been no confirmation on that front.
