Box Office: Azhar that brings out the truth of Match fixing Scandal and disclaims that it is not Azharuddin’s biopic

Azhar got released this weekend on 13th of May 2016. Emraan Hashmi plays Mohammad Azharuddin in film while Nargis Fakhri as Sangeeta Bijlani. The film before it starts displayed a big disclaimer that it is not a biopic on the former Indian cricketer Azharuddin’s life but even though it is fictional there are characters shown in the film referring to Kapil Dev, Sachin Tendulkar, Ravi Shastri, Nayan Mongia, Manoj Prabhakar, Sourav Ganguly in the movie, but the difference here is only their first names were taken but it spoke a lot that it is more than a fiction.

Moreover it digs deeper into a character that was responsible for Azhar’s closeness to Sangeeta and later how they united. Yes it referred directly to Super Star Salman Khan who was in a relationship with Sangeeta Bijlani and they were all set to be married, even as per Salman in many instances, their marriage cards were printed but what happened all on a sudden that they broke up forever. It was rumored that Salman was caught with Somi Ali. “Azhar” touches upon thelove and break-up parts of Sangeeta Bijlani’s life and how she was drawn towards Azharuddin.


“Azhar” is also based on match fixing scandal which destroyed the former Indian cricketer’s life and ended his innings as a cricketer forever and brought ill fame to him. Though later the whole world knew that Azhar was just a victim and not a culprit.

As per box office collection goes, on the first day it has a 25% box office occupancy while  film pundits say it is one of Emraan Hashmi’s best performances after ‘Jannat 2‘ or ‘Raaz 3‘.Prachi Desai and Lara Dutta also got screen space in the movie.


All the best to Azhar on its success journey.
