The sports director who last worked on National award winning sports films Mary Kom, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Chak De! India will now be chalking out and directing some crucial highlight scenes in the entertainer based on the life and times of former Indian Captain, Azharuddin...Sources reveal that Rob and his ReelSports' team of stunt and sports coordinators are currently in London, where the film is being shot. Recently we spotted cricketer Azharuddin flying to London to overlook the filming of the cricket scenes and support Emraan Hashmi in the portrayal of himself.
