Earlier it is said that Sonam Kapoor, who had featured in Bhushan Kumar’s music video Dheere Dheere opposite to Hrithik but later on she refused to get the offer of this third installment of this popular franchise.
Then the next big name came in front was of bollywood’s Queen Kangana Ranaut, who had worked with Hrithik in Kites (2010) and Krrish 3 (2013) but the recent spat between these two rumoured couple had pushed Kangana to back out of this project. Kangana had recently targeted Hrithik, whom she called his ex beau not to spread the false information upsets Hrithik and he answered her in his own way.
After all these unwanted hiccups, finally it is reported that the search of the female lead for Aashiqui 3 has stopped on Alia, who seems to be perfect for the role. Although, still we have to wait for the official confirmation but the makers have almost locked Alia for the role.
Meanwhile, Alia is not present to comment on this. She is quite busy in the promotions of her upcoming romantic-drama Kapoor and Sons in which she is sharing the screen space with his rumoured boy friend Sidharth Malhotra and Fawad Khan. The film is going to release on 18th March 2016. Apart from this, she is also shooting for Gauri Shinde’s next in which superstar Shah Rukh Khan is also playing a very important role.
Aashiqui is now become a brand in Hindi cinema. The first two parts of this franchise were superhits. This franchise is known for its outstanding music. Mohit Suri, who had directed Aashiqui 2 (2013) is once again going to direct the third part which might go on the floors in the second half of 2016.
