Exclusive! Emraan Hashmi to play villain in Salman-Katrina starrer ‘Tiger 3’
The antagonist of ‘Tiger 3’ had still not been finalized when we broke the story that Katrina Kaif and Salman will start shooting for the film in March. We had categorically mentioned in that story that the producers of ‘Tiger 3’, Yash Raj Films, want to cast a relatively new face as an antagonist as they did with Sajjad Delafrooz in ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ . Well, like most often, we have another exclusive for you today. The villain has been cast and it’s Emraan Hashmi.
A source says, “YRF felt that Emraan fits the role as a T. He is a fine, intense actor and that quality won him the rle.”
Buzz on the film has been that it will take off from where Shah Rukh Khan-led ‘Pathan’ ends. Reportedly, Salman has a few minutes role in the climax of ‘Pathan’. The first schedule of ‘Tiger 3’ will be in Mumbai and will kick off sometime in March 2020, mostly the third week. Emraan is expected to join in March itself. The first schedule will kick off in YRF Studios wherein Emraan will suit a few scenes with Katrina and Salman. The second schedule will be in the Middle East and the third and final schedule is likely to be in Mumbai again.
Salman and Katrina have previously played the lead pair in ‘Yuvvraaj’, ‘Partner’, ‘Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya’, ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’. ‘Bodyguard’ had Katrina in only a song, while Salman made a brief appearance in ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani’ playing himself. In ‘Hello’, both made special appearances.
