Expanding the Spy universe
Reportedly, the makers are looking to expand the spy universe. A source previously told that Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone are in talks for their spy universe. It is believed that Alia has signed up for a female-led film under YRF. A source said, “There are chances that one may see her in a cameo, owing to the strategy that YRF has been following. They give a glimpse of some character from their other film of the same universe as Salman Khan did in Pathaan and Shah Rukh Khan will do in Tiger 3.”
YRF Spy universe
The YRF spy universe began with the 2012 film Ek Tha Tiger and has seen additions like the 2019 film War and the 2023 film Pathaan, with agents being played by Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff and Shah Rukh Khan. War 2 and Tiger Vs Pathaan are the two films lined up next in the franchise.
The prequel was directed by Siddharth Anand and saw Hrithik playing a rogue RAW agent, Kabir while Tiger Shroff played Saurabh, a RAW agent turned mole. The film, which also starred Vaani Kapoor, was a massive success at the box office.
