    When was Azharuddin forgiven?

    Like seriously, I must have missed this. Over the last few months, he seems to have gone from the man who almost killed Indian cricket to this misunderstood hero. The **** almost destroyed the game and now he's being treated like a god on television during the IPL broadcast. Why? Because his son died? Because of that absolute farce of an episode where his ban was "lifted"?

    Just in time for the release of that scummy as **** (and totally 100% factual ) movie based on his life too. Makes me sick to my stomach. Had to say it.

    TRP for the new movie. Hate the way he is being treated with royalty on all possible PR platforms just coz a movie based on his career is few days away from release.

    This.

    The scummy INC may have forgiven him, but I certainly haven't.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'

    It's the movie for sure, yeah.

    I'm also astonished at how many of our dumbass general public have bought into the narrative of him not actually being a self confessed cheating asshole. To see him now being paraded around as this heroic figure is so sickening. None of the media have been pointing this nonsense out either. It's all so blatanty ****ed up.

    Don't forget when he tried to play the minority card.

    It's all a well planned set up from the media and Bollywood circles. To make him look like a hero for a brief period and then even they wouldn't care what the rest of his life would look like. And the public fall for it.

    Majority of the cricket fans would hate to see how he is being treated right now.

    Hey look on the bright side - at least we won't be voting him onto a list of greatest Indians like the Saffers did with Cronje.

    You guys are over-reacting. Even murderers and serial killers get treated like royalty when a movie is released about their life. This is probably going to be his last 15 minutes of fame before he gets banished into obscurity anyway.

    We now look at the surrounding circumstances eg his mental state at the time, stress of the captaincy or some bull****

    In 2016 we like to view criminals as more sympathetic.


    Hansie is looked at as 'misunderstood' as well by the general public

    I remember he was on some TV show on Star Plus or something that my parents were watching, and I had to inform them about what a scumbag he was.

    My dad is actually a cricket fan and remembered Azhar getting accused of fixing, but thought he was just dropped and nothing came of it. I had to go through the wiki page with them and tell them how he and Jadeja were banned for life, only to randomly have that ban lifted a few years later.

    It's disgraceful. But so typical of India.

    The **** made me support opponent teams over India in that period. It took a Prince of Kolkata to undo the damage he did to Indian cricket. Cant ever forgive the cheat to be honest.

    On the hindsight, I've never been a fan of biopics. It's correct to admire a specific group of individuals who have excelled in their art to the point putting them few tiers above the average audience, but a biopic based on them is like promoting narcissism.
