One of India’s biggest superstars, Salman Khan, is back to reprise his much-loved role as agent Tiger a.k.a. Avinash Singh Rathore in Yash Raj Films’ Tiger 3.

Directed by Maneesh Sharma, Tiger 3 is set to release on the big Diwali holiday window this year and Aditya Chopra unveiled a video today named Tiger Ka Message that reveals that Tiger is in peril after being framed as Enemy Number 1!

This video sets up the plot of the film that will show how Tiger goes on a life-threatening mission to hunt down his enemies in this vengeful action entertainer. Tiger wants to clear his name for his country and for his family, and he won’t stop at nothing!

Tiger Ka Message, a video that is a precursor to the trailer, marks the start of the promotional campaign for the film. Interestingly, the video was launched on September 27, YRF’s Foundation Day, that is, the birth anniversary of the legendary filmmaker, Yash Chopra.

Aditya Chopra is building the YRF Spy Universe brick by brick and Tiger 3, starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, is the next big one from this franchise. This is the fifth film from the YRF Spy Universe and the audience is now invested in seeing the characters of this franchise grow with the life stories of three super spies – Tiger, Kabir (Hrithik Roshan) and Pathaan (Shah Rukh Khan).

The YRF Spy Universe kicked off in 2012 with Ek Tha Tiger, followed by Tiger Zinda Hai (2017), War (2019) and Pathaan (2023). It was Ek Tha Tiger and Tiger Zinda Hai’s humongous success that cemented Aditya Chopra’s belief that he could introduce two more larger-than-life spy agents, Kabir and Pathaan in the YRF Spy Universe.

It was in Pathaan that Aditya Chopra officially revealed that he was building the YRF Spy Universe and unveiled the franchise logo. The crossover of characters also started with Pathaan, which saw the union of Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan in a larger-than-life action sequence celebrating the aura of these two cinematic icons.

YRF intends to interconnect every spy film in the post-Pathaan world. Tiger 3 follows the events of Tiger Zinda Hai, War and Pathaan, and will be carrying forward the promise of an edge-of-the-seat action spectacle that people have not seen before on the big screen.

Shah Rukh Khan thus makes a cameo appearance as Pathaan in Tiger 3, which has music by Pritam. This will be the first that both characters will appear twice in the same year.
