The actor opened up about his co-star and his upcoming film exclusively to BollywoodLife...
Emraan Hashmi, Nargis Fakhri and Prachi Desai are busy promoting their upcoming film and as they enter the last stage of promotions, they reminisced about the whole journey. The film based on the life Mohammed Azharuddin, has been difficult for all three actors as they play real life characters. In an EXCLUSIVE interview with us Emraan (Azharuddin), Nargis (Sangeeta Bijlani) and Prachi (Naureen) talk about how they prepped for their part, the difficult elements of their character and much more... Azhar
Getting into the skin of a character is difficult, more when you have to act like a certain person in a biopic. Tell us what was the most difficult element of your character that you had to enact?
Nargis: To be feminine, those who know me will agree.
Emraan: Yes, she's quite a, I don't like to use the word tomboy, but she is a bit of an aggressive chick.
Prachi: Yes (laughs). Emraan: Everything was difficult about my character. From getting the small nuances right, to the walk, to get the small elements of his body language right. Also the cricketing bits were the most difficult part, I don't come close to playing like Azharuddin.
Prachi: Naureen was actually 16 when she married Azharuddin and this was during the late 80s. I obviously didn't know how life was back in those days in Hyderabad and coming from a conservative family. Also playing a girl who hasn't been exposed that much, so that was sort of difficult for me as I haven't lived through that period.
The actors also revealed to us that
Azhar is actually not a biopic. As Prachi mentioned to us EXCLUSIVELY, "Essentially Azhar is not a biopic, of course it is a dramatised version of the most important years of Azhar's life. So, yes the real events are there but we have taken the liberty, for cinema, dramatised it a little."
The actors also spoke about how they prepared for their roles. Check out our video interview with Emraan,
