The first look of the film Azhar has managed to create much buzz on social media. While screening the teaser of the film Azhar, Emraan Hashmi praised the writer of the film. He is playing lead role in the film.

"It is a huge task but our team is very excited. Rajat has written a fantastic script and we are very gung-ho about this and that is why for the first time I guess, someone's releasing a film almost a year before the release", Imran Hasmi said.

Former cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin was also present at the screening of the first look of his biopic film. He applauded Emraan Hashmi for playing his character in the film. He also revealed that he has been a huge fan of Hashmi. 

"I think he is very apt for the role. He really worked hard for the role. He is my favourite actor also. I have watched all his films", said former Indian skipper Azharuddin.

Emraan Hashmi said playing the former cricketer was quite challenging for him, as his style was quite unconventional. The film deals with the career of cricketer Azharuddin and his eventful life.

"There are many challenges. His cricketing style was very unconventional and I a m an average galli cricketer but when he started training me then I realised I have a lot to learn in cricket and hopefully I have become better over the past three months. But I have to polish his leg glance and we pretty much play around 50 over every day. But we have to get it before the shooting starts", Hashmi said.
