Tiger 3, third part in the franchise of Ek Tha Tiger and Tiger Zinda Hai, is being directed by Manish Sharma. Starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, this third part of the film franchise film is being touted to be biggest action film of Hindi cinema, in both its budget and grandeur.
YRF started shooting for the film earlier this year, which like many other films had to be halted due to ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Emraan Hashmi was roped in to play a villain against Salman Khan and had even started shooting for his track in the film.
Now we learn more details on Emraan Hashmi’s character – he’s set to play an ISI agent in the film.
“Emraan Hashmi plays the role of a Pakistani agent, who is pitted against RAW official, Tiger, played by Salman Khan. It’s essentially Tiger vs Tiger, as the ISI describes Emraan as Pakistan’s answer to Tiger aka. Avinash Singh Rathod. If you heard the late actor Girish Karnad, say, ‘yeh kaam sirf ek admi kar sakta hai, Tiger’ it’s time to be introduced to the toughest and the only person who can play a nemesis to Tiger – ISI agent, Emraan Hashmi,” revealed a source to Pinkvilla.

Emraan’s character is said to be street smart, badass with all traits that a suave agent commands, who gets into an ideological battle with Tiger. “His look is also far off from the negative leads we have seen. In-fact, it’s as stylish as it gets.”
It’s going to be a cat and mouse chase with Indian and Pakistani intelligence agencies battling it out. “You may hear a top Indian official calling the rogue agent, Tiger, back on mission by probably saying something on the lines of Tiger Ko Rokne Ke Liye…. Tiger Ko Wapis Lao,” the source informed.

The source also stated that late actor Girish Karnad is being missed by the entire gang, as his character shared a very special bond with Tiger. On Katrina’s character Zoya, who is also an ISI agent, the source assured “Well, wait and watch. Being an ISI Agent, her character has a terrific arc in Tiger 3, and the cards will be opened at the right time. But watch out for Zoya’s track in Tiger 3.”
The film will resume shoot at YRF studios in Mumbai in the month of June, after which they will take the shoot to European countries. Ranvir Shorey, who played Tiger’s right hand, Gopi, in Ek Tha Tiger, also makes a return to Tiger’s world with this part.
