Alia Bhatt to play a super-agent in YRF's first female-led spy thriller?

Aditya Chopra's Yash Raj Films is on a roll. After the success of Pathaan starring Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, the production house is busy rolling out films for the biggest spy universe. As of now, three films have been locked to expand the universe. Now, according to the latest reports, Alia Bhatt has been signed to play an agent in YRF's first female-led spy thriller. A source close to the development told an entertainment portal that the yet-to-be-titled film will be mounted on the grandest scale possible.

The source said, "Alia Bhatt is one of the biggest crowd pullers in today’s time and she will be playing a super-agent in the YRF Spy Universe like Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, and Shah Rukh Khan. Aditya Chopra and the team have planned an epic female-led spy film with Alia Bhatt which is expected to push her to the edge."

The source added, "Alia’s inclusion to the Spy Universe indicates that Aditya Chopra is leaving no audience segment out of the equation. She will be playing a spy in an out-and-out action entertainer, and this will be a big novelty for the audience base that she appeals to. It’s going to be Alia Bhatt like never before."

Before concluding, the source shared, "Aditya Chopra is very bullish about Alia and has big plans for her character arc in his universe. He is looking to start a franchise within the Spy Universe centered around Alia’s character and he will pull all stops to mount the yet untitled film on a scale that none can imagine."

Workwise, Alia will be seen in Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani. YRF is currently working on Tiger 3, War 2 and Tiger Vs Pathaan.
