Hate Story 3 and Aksar 2, both these films are in suspense thriller genre so people are thinking in that manner. Aksar 2 is love story and Hate Story 3 wasn’t a love story. I played negative character in Hate Story 3 and in this film people will get to know about my character after watching the film. “
