PRACHI TO PLAY AZHAR’S WIFE
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.
