Actor Kunaal Roy Kapur will be seen in a completely different avatar in Azhar, the biopic on former Indian cricketer Mohammed Azharuddin. Emraan Hashmi essays the role of Azhar in the movie that releases in May.

Kunaal’s character is based on the lawyer who defended Azhar in the match-fixing scandal. Talking about his look in the film, Kunaal says, “It took about two hours to get the look because of the prosthetics. I had a latex bald piece stuck to my forehead and then there was a wig that went on top of it. I was given a denture-like thing to make my face look fuller. By the end of the look test, I couldn’t recognise myself. I was shocked.”

Directed by Tony D’Souza and produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and MSM Motion Pictures, Azhar is slated for a worldwide release on May 13, 2016.

Azharuddin led the Indian cricket team for most of the 1990s. He was implicated in a match-fixing scandal in 2000, and banned for life. But later in 2012, the Andhra Pradesh High Court lifted the ban.
