A source told the portal, "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.”

Talking about YRF's Spy Universe, it started with Salman Khan as Tiger in the 2012 film Ek Tha Tiger. It was directed by Kabir Khan. Then, Salman reprised his role as Tiger in Ali Abbas Zafar's Tiger Zinda Hai. It was released in 2017. The next film, in the spy universe, was Siddharth Anand's 2019 release War, starring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff in lead roles. Then came Shah Rukh Khan's blockbuster Pathaan (2023), which also saw a special cameo by Salman Khan.
