The lead character in Aashiqui 3 is star Kartik Aaryan, who grew up admiring “the timeless classic Aashiqui.” Anurag Basu will helm the third instalment of the popular Aashiqui franchise. The name of the female actress is still a mystery. Kartik also referred to himself as “a great fan” of Anurag in a recent interview.
Mahesh Bhatt directed Aashiqui (1990), which was supported by T-Series and Vishesh Films. The principal actors were Anu Aggarwal and Rahul Roy. Aashiqui 2, which was directed by Mohit Suri and starred Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur, brought the franchise back to life in 2013. It was also profitable at the box office.
“The timeless classic Aashiqui is something I grew up watching and working on Aashiqui 3 is like a dream come true. I feel privileged yet grateful collaborating with Bhushan Kumar and Mukesh Bhatt for this opportunity. I’ve been a big fan of Anurag Basu’s work and collaborating with him on this one will definitely shape me in many ways.” Kartik said in a Variety interview
On Monday, Kartik posted a group picture on Instagram. Kartik was shown with Anurag, Bhushan Kumar, Mukesh Bhatt, and music director Pritam. In the post’s caption, he penned, “Team ‘A’ (red heart and multiple musical notes emojis). #AnuragBasu #Pritam #BhushanKumar #MukeshBhatt.”
Kartik will next be seen with Kriti Sanon in Rohit Dhawan’s Shehzada, set for release on February 10, 2023. In addition, he will star with Kiara Advani in Sajid Nadiadwala’s Satyaprem Ki Katha, which will be released on June 29, 2023. In the Ekta Kapoor-produced film Freddy, which stars Alaya F and Kartik, a romantic thriller is promised. Additionally, he is developing Captain India by Hansal Mehta.
