Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Variety -

Ac­tor Prachi De­sai (right) will be seen es­say­ing the role of for­mer crick­eter Mo­ham­mad Azharud­din’s first wife, Nau­reen, in an up­com­ing biopic on the crick­eter.

Prachi feels that it is a chal­leng­ing role to pull off. “It will be quite chal­leng­ing, as I don’t think any­body knows (much) about Nau­reen yet. We know about her, but we don’t know her,” says the ac­tor.

And she ex­plains her predica­ment, say­ing, “It will be chal­leng­ing be­cause it’s for the first time that some­body is putting a face on her (Nau­reen) on­screen.”

The ac­tor adds that the on-field shoot por­tions in Lon­don have al­ready started and she is look­ing for­ward to join­ing the team soon.

Azharud­din had sep­a­rated from his first wife Nau­reen, and mar­ried ac­tor Sangeeta Bi­jlani, but later sep­a­rated from her too. Ac­tor Em­raan Hashmi will be seen por­tray­ing the crick­eter on­screen.
