Actor Emraan Hashmi, who has dabbled in almost all genres and essayed a myriad of characters, has finally explained the reason why he wanted to play a villain.

Emraan was pitted against Salman Khan in the third instalment of the Tiger franchise, which is now streaming digitally.

Emraan said: “It is truly special when a film keeps giving you appreciation and respect again and again. This means that a film has made a place for itself in the books of time. It is amazing to have got so much love playing an anti-hero in Tiger 3.”

He added: “I was sold on the idea to play a villain who as shrewd and cunning as he is powerful enough to take on an iconic hero like Tiger in a hand to hand combat. Aditya Chopra & Maneesh Sharma created a very unique anti-hero archetype for me to play with and make him my own.”

Emraan further shared: “I’m delighted that the audience gave me love when Tiger 3 was released in theatres and the film went on to become a big hit. Now, they are again pouring love on me when Tiger 3 is released on streaming. This is testimony to the fact that the film and its story and its characters have connected to the hearts of audiences.”
