The trailer proved that the film intends to be as controversial and scandalous as Azhar himself and will definitely turn a lot of heads with all the people it points fingers to.The trailer shows a lot of promise in the movie and we can't wait for it to release.

Here are five reasons why we are highly awaiting the release of the film.

1)Emraan Hashmi - Emraan Hashmi plays the titular role of Mohammad Azharuddin, former skipper of the Indian cricket team who was accused of betting and match fixing. This is career changing role for him, who has finally started stepping out of the Bhatt camp and is venturing into different genres.

2) Nargis Fakhri plays Azhar's second wife Sangeeta Bijlani, former Miss India and Bollywood actress, who left it all to be a dutiful wife to Azhar. Nargis has landed a plump and a meatier role than her previous outings and we can't wait to see how she plays the mystique and suave Sangeeta.

3) Prachi DesaiPrachi Desai plays Noureen, Azhar's first wife who not only had to deal with her husband walking away her alone with two children, but also later lose her oldest son to a freak motorbike accident. It will be interesting to see the movie from the point of view of Noureen who has so far lived a life shrouded in mystery.

4) Match fixing angle - We all interested to know what really happened and how Azhar got stuck in this mess of betting, match fixing and bookies.

5) Reactions from contemporaries - We are eager to know how his contemporaries react when the whole world comes to know about his dual life. Whether he was guilty or was he framed, one would come to know only on May 13th, 2016 when the film hits the theatres. But it is sure to unsettle a lot of his former team mates as even their lives will stand exposed.
