In one of the old interviews, Emraan Hashmi was asked about film, to which he replied, “I don’t know. Am I a part of it? I’m hearing this news of me doing the film from the media. The talks are on. Ask Tiger (Salman Khan) if I’m doing the film or not.”
But the actor has expressed his desire to work with Salman. Speaking to to PTI, the actor has said, “I would love to work in the Tiger franchise. I would love to work with Salman. It has always been a dream and hopefully it will come true,” the actor had said.
Tiger 3 directed by Maneesh Sharma will also see Shah Rukh Khan’s cameo. The first part – Ek Tha Tiger – released in 2012 while Tiger Zinda Hai was released in 2017. Salman Khan reprises his role as special agent Avinash Singh Rathore in the third part while Katrina Kaif again plays Zoya Humaini.
