In a recent media interaction Emraan Hashmi opened up on the love and appreciation the audience has poured in for his role as a villain in Tiger 3. The film which released on Amazon Prime Video a few weeks ago after its theatrical run has set a separate record for streaming.

Talking about the film’s success, Hashmi 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 really amazing to have got so much love playing an anti-hero in Tiger 3.”

He adds, “I was sold on the idea to play a villain who as much 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.”

The actor further added, “I’m delighted that audience gave me love when Tiger 3 released in theatres and the film went on to become a big hit. Now, they are again pouring love on me when Tiger 3 has 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.”

Also starring Salman Khan & Katrina Kaif in lead roles, Tiger 3 is the fifth film from YRF Spy Universe, the biggest movie IP of India. All the films from YRF’s spy-verse - Ek Tha Tiger (2012), Tiger Zinda Hai (2017), War (2019), Pathaan (2023) & Tiger 3 - have been blockbusters.
