And he adds: “I think YRF Spy Universe is a financial and cultural giant. And as one of the most treasured IPs, we are very proud of it. So there will be a lot of things coming in the spy universe. We are going to see more and more films shot under this concept. But of course, I'm not going to share everything here. But we will talk about it at a more opportune time. But for now, I can only say that Alia Bhatt is spearheading a spy universe film.”

Alia Bhatt will team up with young and promising Bollywood star Sharvari Wagh in the yet-to-be-titled film. They will play super agents in the action entertainer! The YRF Spy Universe started with Salman Khan Ek Tha Tiger (2012) followed by Tiger Zinda Hai (2017), and War (2019), starring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. It was carried out with Pathanstarring Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham and then tiger 3 with Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. Now the next project will be War 2 starring Hrithik Roshan, NTR Jr. and Kiara Advani and directed by Ayan Mukerji.

Akshaye also touched on the super successful year YRF has had in streaming with The Railway Men, about the Bhopal gas tragedy, being a global hit show! It trended at number three on Netflix! The Romantics, a documentary series about YRF and its impact on pop culture for 50 years, also became a global success story.

Akshaye says, “The Railway Men trended in over 36 countries, but you feel the success of the content when you meet people who don't speak your language, watch the content and appreciate it. To me, that's a great definition of success. We are a company that is not afraid of failure. We want to be able to make disruptive content.

And he adds: “India loves cinema. It's a big part of our culture, it's a big part of our team. And I think The Romantics was a journey that all viewers followed. So everyone has a YRF story in their life. My parents had a YRF story from Yash Ji's time. I had a YRF story from Adi's time. Like me, there are other people who have a YRF story. There is a song that played at your wedding, which was from a YRF movie. There was a time in life when you went to see a movie and it was a YRF movie and you went with a certain person who you may or may not be with, but who you still have good memories of.”

Akshaye further says, “I think because of that connection, and the connection with this company, and the studio has had it, it's a cultural connection with the audience. And I think that's what got people excited and attracted people to see the romantic ones, which would make them love them more. The pure nostalgia here, in terms of the young people connected to them, because again, there was a story about their family, or a movie that they saw and loved. Not to forget, it also had Aditya Chopra making his on-screen debut and that caught our attention!
