Yash Raj Films Unveils ‘Alpha’ with Alia Bhatt, Sharvari Wagh

Yash Raj Films (YRF) has set the stage for a thrilling new addition to its cinematic universe with the announcement of “Alpha,” a high-octane spy thriller headlined by Bollywood sensations Alia Bhatt and Sharvari Wagh.

Directed by Shiv Rawail, the film marks YRF’s first female-led venture into the world of espionage. The eagerly awaited project kicked off its filming journey in Mumbai and the United Kingdom, promising audiences a globetrotting adventure as Bhatt and Wagh take on daring missions.

Anil Kapoor, a veteran of the silver screen, joins the cast as their mentor, adding gravitas to the dynamic duo’s espionage exploits.

According to reports, Alia Bhatt underwent an intensive two-month training regimen under specialist guidance to master the demanding stunts required for her role in “Alpha.” YRF took to social media to unveil the film’s title, christening their leading ladies as the formidable “Alpha girls.”

The film’s announcement marks a significant milestone in YRF’s spy universe, which began over a decade ago with the blockbuster “Ek Tha Tiger” (2012) starring Salman Khan.

Known for its larger-than-life narratives, YRF’s spy franchise has captivated audiences with films like the recent box-office juggernaut “Pathaan.” Now, with “Alpha,” the studio introduces its first female protagonist, alongside iconic male counterparts like Pathaan (Shahrukh Khan), Tiger (Salman Khan), and Major Kabir (Hrithik Roshan).

Sharvari Wagh, fresh from her success in the box-office hit “Munjya,” is set to dazzle audiences next in Nikkhil Advani’s “Vedaa,” alongside John Abraham and Tamannaah Bhatia, slated for release on August 15. Meanwhile, Alia Bhatt’s upcoming slate includes Vasan Bala’s “Jigra,” hitting theaters in October 2024, and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s highly anticipated period drama “Love & War,” scheduled for Christmas 2025.

With “Alpha,” Yash Raj Films not only expands its cinematic universe but also champions strong female leads in the action genre, setting the stage for an exhilarating spy spectacle that promises to redefine the genre’s conventions. Stay tuned as “Alpha” gears up to deliver adrenaline-pumping thrills and espionage intrigue like never before.
