Anthony D'souza: Prachi Desai not to play first wife in Mohammad Azharuddin biopic

While Emraan Hashmi has been signed on to portray cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin in his biopic, being helmed by Anthony D'souza, actress Prachi Desai has also been approached for the film. Though Emraan is confirmed for the project, Prachi is yet to come on board.
ANTHONY D'SOUZA AND PRACHI DESAI
While the rumors are rife that Prachi is playing the first wife and Kareena Kapoor second wife of Emraan Hashmi in the biopic respectively, Anthony clears that Prachi is just approached and nothing is finalized. The casting is still in the process.
''Prachi Desai has been approached for the project but we haven't finalised on anything as the film is still in the casting process,'' confirms the director.
Anthony further discloses, ''As the film is in the scripting stage and will take a month long time to be completed, it will go on floors by mid-next year.''
Quiz Anthony if the on-going fad of biopics induced him to make a film on Azharuddin and he says, ''I am a huge fan of Azharuddin and cricket. It's the right time to tell the story.'' But ask Anthony what aspects of Azharuddin's life is he planning to cover and how he would be treating it to not look biased and he replies, ''We will portray the good and bad of his life, starting from his journey as a cricketer till date.''
Having embarked his career with Akshay (BLUE, BOSS) and the superstar being his great buddy, we wonder what made Anthony go for Emraan. ''I am indebted to Akshay Kumar but the script and producers (Balaji Motion Pictures) demanded Emraan Hashmi,'' Anthony clears.
Before signing off, Anthony reveals Emraan has already started practicing the game to get into the skin of the character.
