Nargis Fakhri who plays Sangeeta Bijlani in the bio-pic on her former husband cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin is all set to meet Ms Bijalani.
Says a source close to the project, “A meeting between Nargis and Ms Bijalani is on the anvil. We’ve already sounded the two ladies out, and they’re game.”
Apparently, the only hitch is that Sangeeta Bijlani doesn’t want to be involved with the Azhar bio-pic in any way. Having said that Ms Bijlani is game to meet the younger woman to advise her in any way that Nargis wants.
Nargis we hear is very excited about getting to meet a real-life character who is very much in the public eye.
“For Prachi Desai playing Azhar’s first wife Noureen is easier, as Noureen is no longer in the public eye. The challenge for Nargis is to portray Sangeeta Bijalani as a real person without mimicking or imitating her,” says a source.
