Yes, Alia and I are doing Aashiqui 3: Sidharth Malhotra


Rumoured lovers Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt will be seen romancing each other on screen for the third time in a new romantic drama. Recently, there were reports that Alia has replaced Shraddha Kapoor in ‘Aashiqui 3’ which also stars Sidharth.

Now, Sidharth has also confirmed the news of signing the romantic drama with his rumoured ladylove. “Yes, Alia and I are doing Aashiqui 3. It’s a great space and I hope people like us. It’s a great franchise to be a part of,” the ‘Ek Villain’ actor was quoted by a leading publication

Sidharth and Alia debuted together in Karan Johar’s ‘Student of the Year’ and again worked together in ‘Kapoor & Sons’ which released this year. They have displayed a great chemistry on screen, and the couple’s off-screen camaraderie is also very much talked about.

Sidharth might sing for the film as well. “The plan is to train and sing, so let’s see,” he said. He will also be playing a guitar in the film and is currently learning to play the instrument.

In April this year, filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt in an interview to Mumbai Mirror, confirmed that he would produce ‘Aashiqui 3’ and he has decided to rope in Alia and Sidharth for the film. The film is currently in its scripting stage and is said to go on floors next year.

The franchise has been a hit with the audience. The 1990 film ‘Aashiqui’ made Rahul Roy an overnight star, while the second instalment in 2013 gave immense recognition to Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur.
