The director of the movie Shashank Khaitan has been approached to helm Aashiqui 3.
Yes you read it right. It is believed that the movie will be a joint production by Karan Johar and Mukesh and Mahesh Bhatt’s production houses. And guess which actors have been roped in to play the lead in the movie? Alia Bhatt and Siddharth Malhotra have been roped in to play the lead in the third instalment of the Aashiqui series. Siddharth and Alia have previously worked in Student Of the Year and Kapoor And Sons.
While the first part of Aashiqui was directed by Mahesh, the second part was helmed by Mohit Suri, who is Alia’s cousin. Aashiqui 1 was a musical-romantic-drama which released in 1990 and went on to become one of the biggest hits. The second iteration starring Shraddha Kapoor and Adiyta Roy Kapoor was also appreciated by people. However, it is not known when the movie will go on floors.
