Emraan Hashmi is currently basking in the roaring success of his movie Tiger 3, in which he plays a villain and fights Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. While he is being lauded for making everyone fall in love with the negative character Aatish, the actor shared if we would be seeing him in future YRF spy films.
During a recent conversation with India Today, the Selfie actor said, “I have never thought about it, but like they say never say never,” he added, expressing his desire to be a part of a prequel if that ever happened. “I would love to be a part of someone else’s story, like, say, Pathaan or Kabir. I think that would be interesting and fun,” the actor divulged.
Emraan Hashmi would self-record himself for every look for his character Aatish
In the same interview, the Mumbai Saga actor spilled that there were almost 10 multiple look tests for his character Aatish. Since the director Maneesh Sharma strives for perfection, Emraan would self-record himself on the phone and send him the videos for every look. “It was quite an interesting experience to get under the skin of this character,” the Bollywood star said, adding that he wanted to be clear about the director’s expectations of Aatish before he started shooting on the set.
Emraan Hashmi talks about keeping his character a secret
In an exclusive chat with Pinkvilla, the Tiger 3 villain revealed that he had to lie a lot to keep his character under wraps. Emraan Hashmi said that it was pre-decided that he can’t reveal that he’s a part of the movie. “If you see that even the promo, the way the trailer was cut in which I was there, is the prologue of the voice and ultimately the reveal of the character in the end.”
