Reportedly, the 2019 films War and Mardaani 2 were the last Yash Raj Films backed projects to have witnessed success at the box office.
Its first post-pandemic film Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar (distributed by YRF), followed by Bunty Aur Babli 2, Jayeshbhai Jordaar, Samrat Prithviraj, and the recently released Shamshera, were all major box office failures.
YRF's dry spell at the box office might change in the coming months as the production house has placed bets on two reigning superstars of the country: Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan.
While SRK will be seen in Siddharth Anand's spy drama Pathaan on January 25, Salman has Maneesh Sharma's Tiger 3 in the pipeline, opposite Katrina Kaif.
Besides the poor scripts that run the risk of being called dated, YRF regularly draws ire for using the notorious yellow gradient in films.
