Prachi Desai is adamant the failure of her film ��Azhar�۪ (2016) was due to the unforgiving nature of the audience.

��Azhar�۪ tells the story of the life of former Indian cricketer and former India national cricket captain Mohammed Azharuddin. Desai, who played the former cricketer’s first wife, told PTI,�����There are things which are beyond our control. You��should make peace with it. I feel people were a bit unforgiving towards Azhar, despite the court giving him a��clean chit in the matter.�۝

Azhuraddin�۪s implication in the match fixing scandal resulted in a ban from cricket by the BCCI in 2000 which was lifted in 2012. Desai also said, ���For a lot of people, cricket is huge. They used to��watch and follow him but something fell apart when the controversy happened. Some people took it to their heart.�۝

��Azhar�۪ also starred Emraan Hashmi,��Nargis Fakhri and Lara Dutta. Desai also urged people to watch the film when it premieres on television, ���People should watch this on TV. It has a huge reach, not only in the country but every part of the world.�۝

Desai will be seen next in ��Rock On 2�۪, the sequel to ��Rock On�۪ (2008).
