In a much-anticipated revelation, Yash Raj Films (YRF) CEO, Manan Widhani, officially confirmed that Bollywood sensation Alia Bhatt is set to headline a film in the ambitious YRF spy universe. The announcement, made during the FICCI Frames event, quelled long-standing speculations and rumors surrounding Alia's potential involvement in the high-octane franchise. He said, 

I will share the worst-kept secret in the industry, which is Alia Bhatt is headlining a spy universe film and that the schedule starts later this year. We are actually just so thrilled and excited about having this IP in the studio.

- Manan Widhani Yash Raj Films (YRF) CEO

Describing the YRF spy universe as a "financial and cultural juggernaut," Widhani expressed the studio's excitement about this formidable intellectual property.

During his address, Widhani spilled the beans on Alia Bhatt's upcoming role in the spy universe film, revealing that the shooting schedule is slated to commence later this year. The film is set to feature Alia alongside Sharvari Wagh, and the duo will portray super-agents in this action-packed extravaganza. The YRF spy universe, which has already seen blockbusters like Tiger starring Salman Khan and War starring Hrithik Roshan, is a strategic blend of thrilling narratives where characters from different films cross paths, creating a cinematic universe unparalleled in its scale and ambition.

The YRF spy universe has emerged as a cornerstone for the studio, with films like Pathaan starring Shah Rukh Khan contributing to its cultural and financial prominence. As Widhani aptly described it, the spy universe is one of YRF's most-prized intellectual properties. Notably, Pathaan 2 is slated to predate the much-anticipated clash in Tiger vs Pathaan, adding a twist to the timeline and setting the stage for a clash of cinematic legends on the big screen.

The YRF spy universe, a masterful blend of espionage, action, and star power, is set to expand with more films in the pipeline. War 2, starring Hrithik Roshan, NTR Jr, and Kiara Advani, directed by Ayan Mukerji, is on the horizon, along with Pathaan 2 and Tiger vs Pathaan.
