YRF Spy Universe is now one the biggest IP’s in Indian cinema with all projects from the mighty franchise like Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger Zinda Hai, War & now Pathaan, setting new benchmarks in Indian cinema globally.
From a timeline of YRF’s Spy Universe – it all 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.
