In the Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif-starrer Tiger 3, Emraan Hashmi plays an ISI agent who is referred to as Pakistan’s Tiger. And now we know that Maneesh Sharma, Aditya Chopra, and the rest of the cast are going to great lengths to make his enemy as big as possible, as they have designed a spectacular introduction scene worth over Rs 10 crore.
“Salman Khan films often have some of the most heroic introductory sequences for the actor, and his entry scene of Ek Tha Tiger and Tiger Zinda Hai is among the most iconic in the recent few years. The makers have carefully curated another heroic entry scene for Salman in Tiger 3. Same is the case with Katrina’s Zoya, who got an independent introductory scene in Tiger Zinda Hai. That’s not all, as this time around, even the antagonist will get a larger-than-life introduction. Maneesh, Adi and the stunt team have designed an action sequence costing over Rs 10 crore for Emraan Hashmi’s introduction in Tiger 3,” revealed a source close to the development to Pinkvilla.
“Tiger is an already established character, and hence, they are introducing Emraan as the larger-than-life baddie from the word go. The idea is to introduce him as a guy who is as powerful as Tiger and the introductory scene will set base for the battle royale between the two Tiger’s through the narrative,” the source added.
Emraan is apparently bulking up for his villainous role, much like Salman Khan, who recently uploaded a gym workout video. In terms of the film, Salman and Katrina are back on set for Tiger 3 today at Yash Raj Studio, with Emraan joining them soon.
In Tiger 3, Shah Rukh Khan, who joins the spy realm alongside Pathan, makes a cameo appearance.
