Emraan Hashmi who has stepped into the shoes of Mohammad Azharuddin, in Azhar, a film based on the life and times of the cricketer, seems to have already unconsciously picked up the mannerisms of Azhar.
The actor got so deeply involved in his character that close friends and family have been telling him that his mannerisms have started bearing an uncanny resemblance to that of the cricketer.
Says director Tony D'Souza, "It was quite amusing to see them together because both of them would do it at the same time, making the resemblance far too obvious even when the cameras were not rolling."
He goes on to add, "Emraan has worked hard to get the body language right which included keenly observing the way Azhar speaks, walks, even the way he holds his fork and knife while eating. As part of his prep, he even shadowed the cricketer at least for a month".
