Gautam Gulati to play cricketer Ravi Shastri in Azhar

Gautam Gulati, who rose to fame with his recent win in Bigg Boss, will be making his Bollywood debut with the Ekta Kapoor film Azhar. Based on the real life story of popular cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin, the film will have Emraan Hashmi playing the title role, while Gautam will portray the character of fellow cricketer Ravi Shastri.


Gautam Gulati has already started prepping for the role and it is being said that he is also watching a lot of videos of Ravi Shastri in order to acquire his mannerisms. On the other hand, the actor is also working on his physique to get his act as a cricketer right. We also hear that Gautam has also been practicing some of Ravi Shastri’s signature moves including what was famously known as ‘chapati’ shots.


Few cricket lovers may be aware that Ravi Shastri shared a great rapport with Azharuddin and hence, Gautam will be seen in a pivotal role in the film. Ravi Shastri, who was once a popular left arm orthodox spinner, has currently been elected as the team director for India in the upcoming tour of Bangladesh.


Directed by Anthony D’Souza, Azhar also stars Prachi Desai and Nimrat Kaur in prominent roles. It is slated to release on May 13, 2016.
