Lara Dutta replaces Nimrat Kaur in ‘Azhar’?

Sometime back, we had reported that Nimrat Kaur was chosen to play a lawyer’s role in ‘Azhar’ biopic. But, now the latest reports suggest that she is no longer part of the film.

A source close to the film said that the makers have reportedly approached Lara Dutta to play the lawyer’s role in the film. However, the reason behind Lara’s replacement in the film is yet to be known.

‘Azhar’ biopic is based on life of cricketer Mohammed Azharuddin and will feature Emraan Hashmi in lead role. Prachi Desai and Nargis Fakhri will play the role of his wives in the film. Helmed by Tony D’souza, the regular shooting of this flick will commence from July 24th and is slated to hit the screens on May 13th, 2016.
