Mumbai: Since the trailer came out, Emraan Hashmi has been receiving accolades for his acting and choice of role for his forthcoming film Azhar. Breaking his serial-kisser image, in the film, Emraan will be essaying the role of former Indian cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin.

A new poster of the film was posted by the actor today. The new poster of Azhar looks quite striking. On the poster, a hoarding having Azhar’s(Emraan) picture is seeing catching fire. To add to the drama in it, Nargis, who will be playing the role of Sangeeta Bijlani in the film, is seeing holding Emraan’s hand in the poster. Giving it a quirky caption, Emraan unveiled the new poster on his Twitter account.

Life of cricketer Azhar has been a roller coaster rise. He was a man mired in controversies and only after the release of the film, one can figure out what was the conclusion of all the drama surrounding the cricketer’s life.

Emraan Hashmi’s last release, Hamari Adhuri Kahani, failed to impress the audiences. With Azhar, we hope Emraan impresses viewers with his extraordinary acting skills once again.
Azhar is slated to release on 13 May 2016.
