Bollywood actor Sidharth Malhotra started his journey as an Assistant Director in My Name Is Khan. Well, he later made his big screen debut with Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year. After a lukewarm response of Baar Baar Dekho, Sidharth Malhotra is now all set to be a part of the third installment of the Aashiqui franchise. Sid recently confirmed that he has been offered Aashiqui 3 and he has given a nod for it. As far as the casting goes, Alia Bhatt has been roped in opposite Sidharth Malhotra and the duo will be seen romancing on the big screen.
Interestingly, Alia and Sid will be sharing the screen space for the third time after Student Of The Year and Kapoor And Sons. Confirming about the third installment of Aashiqui, Sidharth said, “Yes, I’ve been offered Aashiqui 3. It’s a germ of an idea right now, but it’s a gem of an idea. I’m yet to read the script, but the concept is appealing.”
The movie is said to be directed by Mohit Suri and it is believed that it would be a contemporary love story. According to the reports, Aashiqui 3 will also be a tragic love story like Aashiqui 2. The music will be an integral part in the film just like the previous film. The protagonist in the first and second part of the Aashiqui series was singer, thus it is reported that the female lead Alia Bhatt may play the role of a singer. However, Sidhath Malhotra will have an intense romantic role in the film.
Aashiqui 3 is said to go on floors in the mid-2017.
