Kartik Aaryan to star in Anurag Basu’s Aashiqui 3
Actor Kartik Aaryan is set to star in the third instalment of the smash hit movie Aashiqui, which will be released in theatres in 22 years. Anurag Basu, known for critically acclaimed films like Barfi, Ludo, and Jagga Jasoos, will direct the picture.
Rahul Roy and Anu Aggarwal starred in 1990 original, which was produced by T-Series and Vishesh Films. Director Mahesh Bhatt was in charge of the acting. Aashiqui 2, a legitimate box office hit starring Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur and directed by Mohit Suri, brought the franchise back to life in 2013.
Reports claim that the third film of the franchise will be a spiritual successor to the second. Aashiqui 3 will have music composed by Pritam, who has collaborated successfully with Basu on films like Gangster, Jagga Jasoos, Barfi, and Life in a… Metro.
Following the success of this year’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Kartik Aaryan said that being the star of a musical love story like Aashiqui 3 is a “dream come true” experience for him because he was so inspired by the first film as a child.
Kartik shared, “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 for collaborating with Bhushan Kumar and Mukesh Bhatt on this opportunity. I’ve been a big fan of Anurag Basu’s work, and collaborating with him on this one will shape me in many ways,”
The Aashiqui franchise has been described as “emotions for the fans” by Anurag Basu, whose most recent Netflix original film was Ludo. “The goal is to continue the legacy in the best manner possible. It would be my first collaboration with Kartik Aaryan, who is renowned for his grit, determination, and hard work in his work, and I’m really looking forward to this one,” the director continued.
Pritam claimed that the third instalment of the Aashiqui franchise, which is known for its top-charting soundtrack, will “take it to its next level.” The ambitious 100-film slate from T-Series includes Aaashiqui 3.
The beloved franchise, whose plot and music are “etched in our hearts,” was ready to be revived, according to T-Series MD and producer Bhushan Kumar. “We are thrilled to announce ‘Aashiqui 3’ in partnership with Mukesh Bhatt, which will be helmed by Anurag Basu, one of my all-time favourite directors.
“The movie will undoubtedly have a new side while keeping the original essence. According to the producer, Kartik is the best actor we could have found; he truly fits the part to a tee and is a true rockstar in every way.
