Director of the upcoming biopic on Mohammad Azharuddin said, “We had all the necessary permits to shoot in the university. But there was some kind of miscommunication among the institution’s 32 unions.Nearly 4,000 union members were stationed outside the gates since early morning. It was quite scary.”
Anthony further added that “Emraan who wanted to have a word with the union members was dissuaded from doing so and safely locked up in a room till the police arrived. Lara Dutta, Prachi Desai and Nargis Fakhri who were on their way to the location were sent back to the hotel.
The university’s management was cooperative but the incident was quite disturbing. We will scout for another location for the courtroom sequence and finish shooting the other parts meanwhile. We don’t intend to waste any more dates.”
The first schedule of Azhar was done in London at the Lords Stadium. The second was to be carried out in Hyderabad Azhar’s hometown.
