“We have not signed anyone apart from Emraan Hashmi yet” – Anthony D’Souza

Bollywood News

Right after the announcement of the Azharuddin biopic, the film was subject to rumours with many names being associated with the film. However, now taking up a stance is director Anthony D'Souza who maintained that it is only Emraan Hashmi who has been signed for the film.

What about the news of Prachi Desai being signed for the biopic. On that, D'Souza says, "We have approached her for the film and we are working out the modalities. I am very happy to be working with her." When asked if she will be playing the role of Azhar's first wife in the film, he refused to divulge the details.

Amidst rumours of Kareena Kapoor Khan playing the role of Sangeeta Bijlani, Anthony completely denies the story and says, "We have not signed anyone for any role, apart from Emraan Hashmi."

Adding that the film is slated to go on floor in May 2015, Anthony D'Souza says, "Since it is based on Azhar's life, it will be shot in different places and at real locations too."

Ask the director about his plans for his next film after the Emraan Hashmi starrer and Anthony firmly maintains that he is currently focusing only on this film. There were initially rumours about Vidyut Jamval playing the lead in Anthony D'Souza's next but the filmmaker denies the story. He says, "I am doing only one film currently. I know Vidyut and I have met him a couple of times but I am not doing a film with him at the moment."
