Mumbai, May 23: Actress Prachi Desai, who is receiving positive reviews for her portrayal of former cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin’s first wife Naureen in the biographical sports drama film “Azhar”, is set to watch the film with her and she is “eager” to know about Naureen’s verdict.
Prachi will travel to Hyderabad to watch the Tony D’Souza directorial with Naureen, who hasn’t seen the film yet.
