Siddharth Anand to direct 'Tiger vs Pathaan' for Yash Raj Films

"Tiger vs. Pathaan", an upcoming film in Yash Raj Films' spy universe, will be directed by Siddharth Anand, according to a recent report. The film would reportedly recast Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan as spies Pathaan and Tiger, respectively.

"Siddharth is receiving a dream cast with Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan coming together for their first full-fledged film since 'Karan Arjun,' and Siddharth will be given all the support he requires to make 'Tiger vs. Pathaan' the biggest film India has ever produced," said a source.

The news comes days after rumors surfaced that the studio had selected "Brahmastra" director Ayan Mukerji to helm the second "War" film starring Hrithik Roshan.

Additionally, it has been widely speculated that Jr. NTR from "RRR" will star opposite Hrithik in "War 2." 

"Pathaan" was released in theaters on January 25, 2023, and received mostly positive reviews from critics and audiences. It was the highest-grossing Indian film of 2023.

The film also featured Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, Dimple Kapadia, and Ashutosh Rana.
