Throwback Bollywood: When Emraan Hashmi fell in love with a married woman, know what was the outcome of their relationship?

Emraan Hashmi's anti-hero character in Salman Khan's Tiger 3 received a positive response after the trailer was released.

Actor Emraan Hashmi will be seen at loggerheads with Salman Khan’s character in upcoming film Tiger 3. The film’s trailer revealed Emraan’s menacing character and now the actor has opened up on the nature of his character and also announced his character’s name as Aatish.

Salman and Katrina Kaif are coming back with the third instalment of the popular Tiger movie franchise. The film, which is part of Yash Raj Films’ Spy Universe, brings Salman back as agent Tiger aka Avinash Singh Rathore and Katrina as Zoya.

Talking about playing the anti-hero in Tiger 3, Emraan said in a statement, “I had an amazing time creating Aatish – a man who is fueled by rage and will go to any length to finish Tiger. I play a very distinctively different villain that is rare in Hindi cinema. He is cerebral, his mind is his greatest weapon and he also wields immense power over authorities across countries to bring his devious plans into motion.”

Emraan added, “He single-mindedly wants to destroy Tiger, his family and by doing that, he wants to take out the biggest super agent of India. He knows Tiger will always be the last man standing for India and he wants him removed at any cost. I’m thankful to Maneesh Sharma for being a guide to bring Aatish to life. It was his vision for the character that I was sold on. He helped me craft a character that I’m immensely proud of.”

The Spy Universe has films like Pathaan, War and Tiger under its umbrella. Emraan said that playing a ‘YRF anti hero’ is special for him and his character was not revealed earlier deliberately. 

“The anti-heroes of the YRF Spy Universe have been the trump cards. They hit you hard by surprise and Aditya Chopra was clear that he wanted my character to also catch people by surprise. So, an elaborate plan was made to keep me under wraps.”

Emraan adds, “I was dying to tell people about Tiger 3 but couldn’t, knowing very well that the pay off would be immense when my character is unveiled to the people. The decision was clear to bring the anti-hero to spotlight with the trailer of Tiger 3 and I’m happy that people are loving my menacing turn! Anti-heroes are always fun to play because you get to essay someone who doesn’t care a damn about rules. Instead, they create their own rules. So, I jumped at the opportunity because I knew that I will have the freedom to create a villain that people will hopefully remember for a long, long time.”

The glimpse of the film, released earlier, showed Tiger appealing to the people of India to decide if he is a patriot or enemy. Salman’s Tiger 3 will release on November 12, with hopes to capitalise the festive and holiday season and is directed by Maneesh Sharma.
