Nargis Fakhri to play Sangeeta Bijlani in Azharuddin biopic?

In this season of biopics, Ekta Kapoor's movie on cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin named Azhar is gradually shaping up. The movie will have Emraan Hashmi essaying the role of the cricketer while Prachi Desai will be playing his first wife Naureen. But apart from these two, Bollywood fans are very keen on knowing who will play the role Azharuddin's second wife Sangeeta Bijlani. Popularly known as 'Bijli' Sangeeta added a touch of glamour to the couple's personal life which automatically sparked media interest.
Sangeeta is a former Bollywood actress and model who featured in hit movies like Tridev and Jurm. She shot to fame when she started dating Bollywood megastar Salman Khan before she married Azharuddin. After being married for a period of 14 years, the duo filed for divorce. According to sources, Nargis Fakhri is a strong contender for this role in the movie as she can add that oomph to the character. At the moment, she has dates blocked for the promotion of her Hollywood movie Spy, but once she returns, we hear that she will sign on the dotted line. Firstly Jacqueline Fernandez and Kriti Sanon were being considered but it seems like Nargis has emerged as the winner.
