Not even a week since its release and the number of people miffed with their portrayal in ‘Azhar’ just seems to be growing longer.
After Sangeeta Bijlani expressed concerns over her representation in the film starring Emraan Hashmi, Prachi Desai and Nargis Fakhri, and Manoj Prabhakar threatened to take legal action, the latest person to be upset is former cricketer Ravi Shastri , who has been shown cheating on his wife in the film.
It is said that Shastri is dismayed at being depicted as a womaniser and even gone ahead and expressed his displeasure to the cricket authorities in the country. A scene in the film shows him canoodling with another woman in a hotel room while his wife is at the same hotel looking for him. Shastri’s family is also said to be shocked by his portrayal in the film.
Back when the sting operation had taken place, Shastri had said a number of things against Mohammed Azharuddin. And sources say that this is Azhar’s way of retaliating.
