Emraan Hashmi injured while training for Azharuddin biopic

Emraan Hashmi, who will soon step into the shoes of former Indian cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin, is training hard for the biopic. The actor, who has been training extensively in the sport, has been working with Azhar to better his game and understand the finer nuances of the sport.


At one such rehearsal, Emraan happened to pull a muscle and had to practice with a painful swelling on his wrists. Says director Anthony D’Souza, “Azhar bhai is a wristy player and is known for his leg glance and he only uses his wrist. Emraan hits approx 300 to 400 balls a day and is only playing with his wrists. Despite the swelling in his hand, he kept practicing to get each and every nuance of Azhar right. This, along with the footwork of Azhar is very tough for anyone to master. But Emraan Hashmi is training really hard for it. On some days Emraan hits another 200 balls in the evening.”


Apart from Emraan Hashmi, we hear that Prachi Desai has been signed to play the role of Azhar’s first wife Naureen.
