You can’t bracket it with Murder. Yes, there are kisses but we haven’t gone all out because it is not that kind of film.”

Former Indian cricketer Mohammed Azharuddin’s biopic Azhar has managed to create good buzz in the run up to its release. While the match-fixing angle that will be showcased in the film has already piqued interest, it’s Azhar’s personal life and his hitherto undiscussed affair and subsequent marriage to Sangeeta Bijalani that viewers will be more eagerly looking forward to watch. And with serial kisser Emraan Hashmi and siren Nargis Fakhri playing Azhar and Sangeeta respectively it won’t be too wrong to hazard a guess that chemistry would be at its sizzling best.

While the duo can be seen passionately locking lips in the trailer, Emraan clarifies that the lovemaking scenes in Azhar wouldn’t be anything similar to Murder or his any of his other previous onscreen bold outings.

Says Emraan, “It’s not an erotic film. You can’t bracket it with Murder. Yes, there are kisses but we haven’t gone all out because it is not that kind of film. This film is predominantly about the court case, match-fixing, cricket world. Stories of cricket that we have unheard of and narrated by the man himself. And then there are stories about his relationships. Like you saw in trailer, this is the story of a man and his relationship with his God, two wives and three match fixing allegations. So predominantly it’s about those allegations and other things come in the sub-plot.”

Emraan also refuses to compare Azhar either with Dhoni or Sachin. The actor sees Azhar in its own space and believes it has all the ingredients of Bollywood masala thriller. “It definitely has a lot of spice to make it a potboiler.”
