After years of rumours, Bollywood actor Kartik Aaryan has finally been cast as the lead in Aashiqui 3.
“The timeless classic Aashiqui is a movie I grew up with. And to be able to play the lead role in Aashiqui 3 is a dream come true. I feel privileged but also grateful to be able to work with Bhushan Kumar and Mukesh Bhatt. I am a big fan of Anurag Basu’s work and collaborating with him will certainly inspire me in many ways,” said Kartik.
The Aashiqui era began in 1990 with the Mahesh Bhatt original starring Rahul Roy and Anu Agarwal. In 2013, Mohit Suri took over Aashiqui 2, starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor. However, for Aashiqui 3, the female lead has not been announced yet. However, the filmmakers have confirmed that the film’s music will be provided by Pritam.
