Apart from Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif reprising their roles as Raw agent Tiger and Pakistani spy Zoya in Tiger 3, it has been revealed that Emraan Hashmi will play the villain in the film. It was even rumoured that the actor had begun filming for his role in the film.
Fans were ecstatic to watch Hashmi collaborate with Salman and Katrina for the first time. On the other hand, no formal announcement was ever made on the subject. But it appears that all of this was for naught.
Emraan Hashmi has issued an explosive statement stating that he will not be a part of Tiger 3’s third instalment, much to everyone’s surprise and dismay. Moreover, he added that he has not shot for the film and never said that he is doing the film. “Who told you what I have already shot for it? People are saying this, but I have not shot for the film. In fact, I am not a part of the film. I don’t know why people are saying this. I have never given a quote or never said that I am doing the film,” Emraan told Pinkvilla.
We’re not sure if he meant it or if he just didn’t want to detract from the anticipation surrounding his new movie, Chehre. The only way to know for sure is to wait and see.
Earlier, when the reports of him joining the star cast of Tiger 3 surfaced online, Emraan told PTI, “I would love to work in the franchise. I would love to work with Salman. It has always been a dream and hopefully, it will come true.”
In another interview when Emraan was asked about the film, Tiger 3, he said, “I don’t know. Am I a part of it? I’m hearing this news of me doing the film from the media. The talks are on. Ask Tiger if I’m doing the film or not.”
Meanwhile, Salman and Katrina have already jetted off to Russia to shoot Tiger 3.
