The YRF Spy Universe, also known as the YRF (Yash Raj Films) Spy Thriller Universe, is a shared cinematic universe that consists of several espionage thriller movies produced by Yash Raj Films. This universe was first established with the movie “Ek Tha Tiger” in 2012, which featured Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in lead roles.
The movies in this universe revolve around spy and espionage themes and feature various characters who work for intelligence agencies from different countries. These movies often involve high stakes, action-packed sequences, and globe-trotting adventures. Apart from “Ek Tha Tiger”, the other movies in this universe include “Tiger Zinda Hai” (2017), “War” (2019), and YRF’s ₹1000 crore mega blockbuster “Pathaan” (2022).
Pathaan, starring Shah Rukh Khan, has set the stage for crossovers of the main characters in the YRF Spy Universe. According to sources, the planning and execution of a crossover scene in Tiger 3 took over six months of meticulous planning between director Maneesh Sharma and YRF head Aditya Chopra. The scene in question features Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan in a never-seen-before action sequence that is said to be even bigger and better than the one in Pathaan.
Is Abhishek Bachchan joining the YRF Spy Universe? It is certain that Abhishek Bachchan’s Jai Dixit will have a future in the YRF spy universe. Not just that, but Pathaan, Tiger, and Hrithik Roshan’s Kabir from War will be crossing paths, and as a result, the franchise will get bigger with every new film.
