Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - ANIR­BAN DAS

Em­raan Hashmi, who will be seen play­ing Mo­ham­mad Azharud­din in an up­com­ing biopic on the for­mer In­dian crick­eter, is do­ing all he can to get into the char­ac­ter. While the ac­tor had started pre­par­ing for the role long be­fore the film went on the floor, Azhar re­cently asked him to visit his home in Hy­der­abad, where he spent his child­hood.

“Em­raan keeps meet­ing Azhar in Mum­bai to un­der­stand his per­son­al­ity. The ex- crick­eter also shares what­ever tips he can, and helps him with dif­fer­ent crick­et­ing tech­niques. Dur­ing one such meet­ing, Azhar asked Em­raan to ac­com­pany him to Hy­der­abad. He wanted the ac­tor to meet his friends. They were in Hy­der­abad for a cou­ple of days,” in­for ms a source close to the ac­tor.

When con­tacted, Em­raan con­firmed the news, say­ing, “A few weeks ago, he came up with the idea to visit Hy­der­abad and I jumped at it be­cause it gave me the op­por­tu­nity to ob­serve him, away from the spotlight, and in his home. The trip was im­por­tant be­cause Azhar shares a deep emo­tional con­nectwith the city, ” he says.
