Actor Emraan Hashmi, who portrays the role of Aatish in the action thriller ‘Tiger 3’ has opened up about the nature of his character. The film, which is part of Yash Raj Films’ Spy Universe, brings Salman back as agent Tiger aka Avinash Singh Rathore and Katrina as Zoya.
Talking about playing the anti-hero in Tiger 3, Emraan said in a statement, “I had an amazing time creating Aatish – a man who is fueled by rage and will go to any length to finish Tiger. I play a very distinctively different villain that is rare in Hindi cinema. He is cerebral, his mind is his greatest weapon and he also wields immense power over authorities across countries to bring his devious plans into motion.”
Emraan added, “He single-mindedly wants to destroy Tiger, his family and by doing that, he wants to take out the biggest super agent of India. He knows Tiger will always be the last man standing for India and he wants him removed at any cost.”
“I’m thankful to Maneesh Sharma for being a guide to bring Aatish to life. It was his vision for the character that I was sold on. He helped me craft a character that I’m immensely proud of,” he concluded.
Directed by Maneesh Sharma, Tiger 3 is scheduled to be released on November 12.
