The YRF spy universe has another movie on the horizon. Titled Tiger Vs Pathaan, the film will showcase a ruthless face-off between superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan. It will be directed by Siddharth Anand.
Recently, it was reported that Siddharth won’t be helming the sequel of his 2019 actioner War and it will be taken over by Brahmastra director Ayan Mukerji.
Talking about the new development, a veteran trade source said, "Aditya Chopra has immense trust in Siddharth Anand to deliver a grand visual spectacle that has never been seen before with Tiger vs Pathaan. Siddharth is getting a dream cast of Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan coming together for their first full-fledged film since Karan Arjun and Siddharth will also be given all the support he needs to mount Tiger vs Pathaan as the biggest film that India has ever produced."
From a timeline point of view, YRF's spy universe started in 2012 when Salman Khan took charge as Tiger in Ek Tha Tiger. In 2017, Salman reprised the role of the super-spy in Tiger Zinda Hai. In 2019, Hrithik Roshan made his entry into the universe as the suave super-spy Kabir in War. With Pathaan, Shah Rukh Khan entered the YRF spy universe as the super-agent Pathaan and delivered a mammoth global blockbuster.
