While rumour mills were rife with reports that Nargis Fakhri will play Sangeeta Bijlani’s role in Mohammad Azharuddin’s biopic- ‘Azhar’, the producer of the film, Ekta Kapoor has rubbished the rumours.
At the launch of the film’s teaser trailer, when Ekta was asked if she’s roped in Nargis for the biopic, she said, “I don’t know where these reports come from. I think some journalist has a dream and the next day it gets printed. Meanwhile, if reports are to be believed, then the winner of ‘Bigg Boss 8’, Gautam Gulati will portray the character of cricketer Ravi Shastri who had a good rapport with Azharuddin.
The film is directed by Anthony D’Souza.
