Tiger 3 actor Emraan Hashmi reveals he’s fond of Salman Khan
Emraan Hashmi was in a sit-down chat with Pinkvilla wherein he spoke about the movie. During the chat, it was revealed that there were multiple possibilities of him working with Salman Khan, and finally, Tiger 3 happened. Speaking about it, the actor said that he had met Salman multiple times, but their collaboration can’t get bigger than this movie.
Talking about Salman, the Mumbai Saga actor shared, “I’m just very fond of Salman. It’s not like we hang out every day, but it’s an equation where whenever I meet him, it’s very warm, and it’s very comfortable. Like there are some people you might meet, and there’s no connect there. Yeah, you’re formal, and you’re cordial, but I think Salman (and I) are very comfortable with each other, and that makes the whole working experience also fun.”
While speaking of the quality of Salman that makes him a popular star, Emraan divulged that the Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor is very charismatic and has a huge aura he doesn’t have to work on. He added, “He is just someone who has got that personality. Some people have to project the personality of a star, but it’s not Salman. Salman can come and be his casual best, and he’s just him. He’s like, ‘sit down and chill,’ and his lazy charm, and he can just be. He’s so captivating.”
