“I did meet Naureen. After all the assumptions and notions that I had heard about her, my perception completely changed for the better when I met her. It was very emotional to see her in reality. There was an instant connect with her, may be because of the script, the character I was playing,” Prachi told PTI.
“In her personal capacity, she shared a lot of insights with me. She’s a very private person but there is so much respect and dignity I have for her. She is inspiring.”
“Azhar” stars Emraan Hashmi in the titular role and also features Nargis Fakhri, Lara Dutta among others.
“Naureen is a mystery. She was Azhar’s first love, wife, got married at an early age of 16 years but nobody knows much about her. It was extremely challenging to put a face to the name,” Prachi said.
