Is Siddharth Anand losing out on directing Pathaan 2 after Fighter debacle?

Director Siddharth Anand, known for his work in the YRF Spy Universe, is facing a significant shift in his directorial roles as reports suggest he will not be helming the highly anticipated sequel, ‘Pathaan 2,’ following the ‘Fighter’ debacle.

Anand, who has been a key figure in the franchise, is stepping away from the director’s chair for this sequel, signaling a change in the creative leadership of the project.

The decision to not have Siddharth Anand direct ‘Pathaan 2’ comes amidst speculations that the underperformance of his recent project, ‘Fighter,’ may have influenced this change.

While Anand expressed pride in Ayan Mukerji taking over the directorial duties for ‘War 2,’ the sequel to his successful film ‘War,’ he acknowledged that the timing and scheduling did not align for him to direct the sequel himself. This development marks a significant departure from his usual involvement in the YRF Spy Universe.

Anand’s relationship with Aditya Chopra, the head of Yash Raj Films, has been described as akin to a father-son bond, with Anand expressing respect and admiration for Chopra. Despite stepping away from ‘Pathaan 2,’ Anand’s collaboration with YRF remains intact as he embarks on the ambitious project ‘Tiger vs. Pathaan,’ a film that promises a monumental clash between Bollywood superstars Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan.

As the YRF Spy Universe continues to expand, the absence of Siddharth Anand from ‘Pathaan 2’ raises questions about the future direction of the franchise and the impact of the ‘Fighter’ debacle on his directorial opportunities within the cinematic universe.

With plans in motion to kickstart ‘Pathaan 2’ under new creative leadership by the end of the year, fans eagerly anticipate the unfolding of this new chapter in the RAW agent’s journey, now under a fresh perspective.
