The Azhar team, Emraan Hashmi, Prachi Desai and Lara Duta were clicked on the sets of “The Kapil Sharma Show”. The trio had a fabulous time as they laughed away at the funny antics of the show’s team. Emraan took the fun up a notch as he promptly took charge of the Dubai Tea Stall on the sets with Lara and Prachi as his pretty customers. They were later joined by Mohammad Azharuddin, who had a friendly cricket face-off with Emraan.

As one of the stars of Mohammad Azharuddin’s upcoming biography Azhar, actor Lara Dutta has called the legendary Indian cricketer a phenomenal person. In the film, the Bollywood beauty plays a lawyer hell bent on proving the match-fixing allegations levelled against Azharuddin, who is played by Emraan Hashmi.

“He [Azharuddin] has lent tremendous support to the film and obviously, remained very involved,” said Lara, at an event that saw her present scholarships to 200 female students. “He is an incredible person. After working with him over this year, I have gotten to know him and he is quite a phenomenal person,” she added.

As the trailer of the film suggests, Azharuddin remains one of the most successful and controversial captains in Indian cricket, owing to his accomplishments on the field, personal relationships and match-fixing scandals. When asked if she anticipates any problems for Azhar from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) — the national governing body for the game — Lara replied in the negative. “The film-makers have done good research on it,” she said. “They have made the film with a lot of care and thought. It will have its own destiny and we will see what the destiny is when the film releases.”




Lara Dutta, who arrived to support the scholarship programme organised by Fair & Lovely Foundation, was all in for women empowerment. The actress felicitated the girls selected for the scholarship scheme.

At the do, Lara recollected her younger days as she spoke about women power. The actress who’s gearing up for her Bollywood release Azhar, spoke about her modeling days and mentioned how she never depended upon her parents to fund for her education.

She said, “I started my career when I was 16. My parents were very supportive of my career decision. The only thing that my mother was concerned about me was my studies. She wanted me to at least have a degree and wanted to see me graduated.”

She further added, “During my course of college, I did not burden my parents with fees. I mean, they were financially strong to support me but I just wanted to stand for myself.”

The actress who looked stunning in a pink gown also spoke about her upcoming film. She will be seen playing a lawyer in Azhar with Emraan Hashmi. When quizzed about the kissing sequences for which Emraan is famous, Lara laughingly said, “The story in the film did not allow for such scenes between us. Bass main bach gayi (laughs).”
