The makers of Emraan Hashmi film "Azhar" have released the teaser of the upcoming sports biopic on Monday, 24 May.

The film, based on the life of the former Indian cricket skipper Mohammad Azharuddin, will deal with the achievements and controversies in his life.

In a grand event, the film's team had earlier released Emraan's first look. The event saw the presence of former Indian cricket captain Azharuddin, Emraan, Ekta Kapoor and many others in Mumbai.

Prachi Desai, who has acted with Bollywood's serial kisser in "Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai" in 2010, will be seen as Azhar's wife Naureen in the upcoming biopic.

The teaser of #Azhar is exciting and garam! Congrats @SnehaRajani @EkmainaurEktu7 @emraanhashmi Tony and @rajatsaroraa

Meanwhile, the controversial man, Kamaal R Khan, has given a negative response for the latest teaser calling it a flop.

#Azhar is flop with very first teaser only coz he says- Match Fix Karne Kaa Ilzam Hai Mujhpar. He could have said- I m Azhar n I m a fixer.

Azharuddin was biggest fixer so film can be good with real story. But Ekta is making it with consent of Azhar so they will show him honest.
