Producer Aditya Chopra is building the YRF Spy Universe brick by brick, and his next offering is Tiger 3, starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, which releases this Diwali.

Yash Raj Films has launched the first poster of Tiger 3 and it promises a jaw-dropping action spectacle as two super-spies take on their most deadly mission yet. Tiger a.k.a. Salman Khan is the OG of the YRF Spy Universe as Ek Tha Tiger (2012) silently put the plan in motion to create slick super-spies that Indian cinema has never seen before.

It was Ek Tha Tiger’s and Tiger Zinda Hai’s mega-success that cemented Aditya Chopra’s belief that he could incorporate two more larger-than-life agents, Kabir a.k.a. Hrithik Roshan in War and Pathaan a.k.a. Shah Rukh Khan in the film of that name into his ambitious plans.

It was in Pathaan that Aditya officially revealed that he was building the YRF Spy Universe, which is now among the biggest IP’s in Indian cinema. The crossover of characters from this ambitious spy universe also started with Pathaan, which saw a union of Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan as Tiger in an adrenaline pumping action sequence that celebrated the superstardom of these two cinematic icons and on-screen spies.

YRF has now officially revealed in the first poster of Tiger 3 that the plot of this film, the fifth from the blockbuster YRF Spy Universe, will follow the events of Tiger Zinda Hai, War and Pathaan! It signals YRF’s intent to tell audiences and fans that every film featuring these super-spies will be interconnected like a true cinematic universe.

Tiger 3 has been directed by Maneesh Sharma. Pritam scores music. Incidentally, Pritam had been approached for Ek Tha Tiger but could not do the film as YRF was simultaneously making Dhoom:3, which Pritam did not want to miss as he was involved with the earlier films in that franchise.
