How John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi are prepping for their villainous roles 

Shahrukh Khan's 'Pathan' and Salman Khan's 'Tiger 3' are two of the most anticipated upcoming movies. The storylines will cross each other since both the films are part of YRF's planned spy universe. Apart from the protagonists, villains of the movies are also prepping hard for their roles. John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi are going to play the baddies in 'Pathan' and 'Tiger 3' respectively. Both of them had to undergo massive physical transformation but in totally opposite manner.

While John Abraham is known for his hulking physique, he had to shed his muscles to look lean while Emraan had to bulk up to match Salman Khan's physique. A source close to the project shared, "Since Shah Rukh Khan is all about swag, body language and style, the makers decided to give a lean avatar to John Abraham. The actor has shed a lot of his muscles and biceps to make the fights believable. It’s the role of a street smart freelance terrorist, and the team was clear on not giving him the usual bulked up attire, against SRK."

About Salman and Emraan, the source said, "Salman Khan is a beast with a bulked-up body and it’s essential to have a villain who can stand in front of him in confidence and mouth those larger than life dialogues. A lean person standing against him wouldn’t leave an impact, and hence, Emraan was asked to beef up to take on Salman in the film. It’s work in progress as he gears up to do his major scenes with Salman in the overseas leg of Tiger 3.”
