A source has informed that the production house behind the Indian spy universe -- YRF isn't talking about this project just yet because they have huge plans to announce it in a grand way but a lot of work has already started on Tiger vs Pathaan. "We are expecting the film to start rolling in January 2024. Aditya Chopra is going to keep all details under the wraps because this is the biggest ever Bollywood film that the industry has attempted to make in a long, long time. It is not every day that you get India's biggest superstars SRK and Salman in one film," the source said. Pathaan: Raj Thackeray Mentions Shah Rukh Khan-Starrer in His Gudi Padwa Speech and Fans Are Unsure if MNS Chief Is Praising or Mocking the Film!

YRF Spy Universe is now one of the biggest IP's in Indian cinema with all projects from the mighty franchises Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger Zinda Hai, War & now Pathaan being blockbusters. With 'Pathaan', the YRF now also has the highest grossing Hindi film of the country as a badge of honour.

From a timeline perspective, it all started in 2012 when Salman Khan took charge as Tiger in Ek Tha Tiger and reprised his role of a super-spy in the 2017 release Tiger Zinda Hai. Then in 2019, Hrithik Roshan swept the audience off their feet with one of the most stylish films of Hindi cinema - War. With two agents in place, the idea for the spy universe came into existence and 'Pathaan' with its colossal collections built the perfect stage for the universe.
