New Delhi: Former cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin, who is actively promoting his upcoming biopic ‘Azhar’, walked out of an interview recently when posed questions about the match-fixing controversy.

Reportedly, the 53-year-old cricketer moved out during an interview when asked about match fixing and refused to return despite being persuaded several times.

According to sources, he even refused to be part of a major show hosted by another news channel as he did not want to be asked ‘hard-nosed’ questions yet again.

The Tony D. Souza directed movie, which stars Emraan Hashmi in the title-role along with Prachi Desai and Nargis Fakhri, is all set to hit the theatres this Friday.
