Nargis Fakhri is the latest name being linked to play the role of Sangeeta Bijlani in Mohammed Azharuddin’s biopic.
Mid-Day reports that the Anthony D’Souza and Ekta Kapoor film, was initially going to have Kareena Kapoor Khan playing the 90s actress but things did not work out. It also stars Emraan Hashmi essaying the protagonist’s role with Prachi Desai cast as his first wife, Naureen.
A source told Mid-Day, “The producers have already had a meeting with Nargis and the modalities are being worked out. As she is slated to travel for the promotions of her Hollywood film Spy, things will be finalised only on her return. Nargis began her career with modelling just like Bijlani, so the makers feel she lends herself to the glamorous role.”
