Life of most successful and controversial Captain of Indian Cricket Team, Azharuddin will be unveiled on big screens tomorrow. Ever since its inception, movie Azhar has been in news for releasing a biopic on Azharuddin, which is probably the first biopic on an Indian cricketer till date. Where Emraan Hashmi will be essaying the role of former Indian Cricket Captain Azharuddin, Prachi Desai and Nargis Fakhri will be playing his wife -Naureen and girlfriend – Sangeeta Bijlani, respectively.
Will it be able to make it on big screen or will have to return to the pavilion soon? Since there aren’t much Hindi flicks releasing this week while all other Hindi movies- like Baaghi- are over two weeks old, and with no superstar film showing up around, Azhar has best opportunity to grab it off and make it a big opening weekend. It just has ‘Buddha In A Traffic Jam’ in competition releasing this week which Azhar can outdo easily at Box Office.
Adding to the benefits is Indians’ craving behaviour for cricket. It is just not definable and may bring whole lot business to Azhar as word of mouth does its job.
Further, leading actor – Emraan Hashmi, with numbers of hit movies, is also expected to make it out of his miraculous performance tomorrow. It wouldn’t be wrong saying he is one of the most in-demand faces of the industry. Where his last flick ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’ had an average opening with 5 Crore, Azhar is estimated to bring in little more than that on its 1st day and it could be something between 8 – 10 Crore. This movie may turn out to be a milestone in career of Emraan Hashmi
Releasing over about 3800 screens worldwide, the film, directed by Tony D’Souza and produced by Balaji Films, should make a good opening on Friday and lead the show biz this weekend.
