Confirmed: Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt to star in ‘Aashiqui 3’

Mahesh Bhatt, director of original 'Aashiqui', will be producing the third instalment in the franchise with his daughter Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra

Sidharth Malhotra has quickly wrapped up work on Ittefaq and is already shooting for Neeraj Pandey’s ‘Aiyaary’. Recently, Sid was seen visiting the Matrix office quite a few times last week. Finally, there is an answer to what’s cooking.

A source revealed, “Sid has been meeting Mohit Suri, who will be directing ‘Aashiqui 3’. The two of them have been discussing the script and finalising everything because they plan to go on floors as soon as Sid is done with ‘Aiyaary‘.”

Alia too joined them for one of the meetings. Alia and Sid will be the leads in the third instalment of the romantic musical franchise.

Alia is also busy shooting for Meghna Gulzar’s next but it’s a smaller film with a start-to-finish schedule. Once she wraps up Meghna’s film, she will have some time in her hand before she begins work on Gully Boy in November. Mohit wants to shoot Aashiqui 3 in that time so they are planning to lock in on the script as soon as possible.”

Mr Bhatt also confirmed the same and said, “Yes, it is true. We have signed Sidharth and Alia for the film. They completely fit the role. When we make films, we look for the perfect casting. They both fit the bill.”
