Nimrat Kaur to play lawyer in Mohammad Azharuddin biopic

Nimrat Kaur, who played the role of a housewife in Ritesh Batra’s acclaimed film ‘The Lunchbox’, will be seen playing the character of a lawyer in Anthony D’Souza upcoming biopic on former India cricket captain Mohammad Azharuddin.

While Emraan Hashmi plays Azhar in the film, Prachi Desai has been cast to play his first wife Naureen. The makers are still in search of an actress to play the role of Sangeeta Bijlani, Azhar’s second wife.

There are also reports that Nimrat’s character in the film will be fictitious, unlike all other actors who will be playing real characters.

The Azhar biopic is likely to release in 2016.

    @indicine Provide Update for MR.X 3D !! Most awaited film Mr.X 3D .

  • News of actor Emraan Hashmi’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the February 2015 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports.

    Emraan Hashmi death hoax spreads on Facebook
    Rumors of the actor’s alleged demise gained traction on Monday after a ‘R.I.P. Emraan Hashmi’ Facebook page attracted nearly one million of ‘likes’. Those who read the ‘About’ page were given a believable account of the Indian actor’s passing:
    “At about 11 a.m. ET on Monday (February 16, 2015), our beloved actor Emraan Hashmi passed away. Emraan Hashmi was born on March 24, 1979 in Mumbai. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.”
    Hundreds of fans immediately started writing their messages of condolence on the Facebook page, expressing their sadness that the talented 35-year-old actor was dead. And as usual, Twittersphere was frenzied over the death hoax.
    Where as some trusting fans believed the post, others were immediately skeptical of the report, perhaps learning their lesson from the huge amount of fake death reports emerging about celebrities over recent months. Some pointed out that the news had not been carried on any major Indian network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of an actor of Emraan Hashmi’s stature would be major news across networks.
    A recent pollconducted for the Celebrity Post shows that a large majority (81%) of respondents think those Emraan Hashmi death rumors are not funny anymore.
    Emraan Hashmi Death Hoax Dismissed Since Actor Is ‘Alive And Well’
    On Tuesday (February 17) the actor’s reps officially confirmed that Emraan Hashmi is not dead. “He joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. He’s still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet,” they said.
    Some fans have expressed anger at the fake report saying it was reckless, distressing and hurtful to fans of the much loved actor. Others say this shows his extreme popularity across the globe.

  • Azar biopic is interesting. …..even though I dont like azar he was one of the most stylish batsman india have ever produced. ..once he has world record of
    1) fastest odi century
    2) highest runs overall in odi
    3) he is the one who promoted sachin as an opener
    4) he is the one who used sachin as match winning bowler ex hero cup final over
    5) he was thebone who taught indian team how to win
    6) suddenly something happen n noone speaks abt him
    people like me hate him due to some things..
    but it is unclear what happened exactly, he ia the only person involved. many questions are there….
    I hope emraan wil give justice to the role…

  • Not a gud decision nimrat. U should be utilising ur talent in bad films with crap actors like arjun kapoor ‘s tevar who is good for nothing. Atleast it will make that flop dirty elephant’s film watchable. Emraan is calibred enough to make a good shot in Azhar. Go Nimrat Go!! Please add some flair to already BLUNT arjun kapoor films. Hahaha…

  • this year w will have four 200 crore club even 300 crore is possible.
    fan:200 crore plus
    bb:200 crore plus
    prdp:200 crore plus maybe!
    dilwale: 200 crore plus.
    brothers :160 crore
    if akshay kumar brothers could not collect 30 crore on independence day then he should never releases his movies during festive weekends becoz he will destroy.

  • This movie is looking very promising, it is very good for Emran Hashmi he has a good movies lines.

    Emraan Hashmi is the Most Versatile and Successful actor in the whole btown. Inshort,Emraan Hashmi is the king of bollywood.

  • Nimrat kaur is very good actress.her lunch box is very nice movie which I watched twice and I made my 8 friends to watch this classic but unfortunately they felt bore,lol.

  • @vish Good question! I think the answer to it is they do not have anything substantial to do in life. There sole aim is to bash people who are proven successful which comes out of high jealousy factor.

  • I hate prachi Desai from the bottom of my heart. She don’t deserve to be in Bollywood films but should try to do more of tv.

  • @complan boy
