Sometime back there were reports doing rounds that Mahesh Bhatt has approached Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt for Mohit Suri's 'Aashiqui 3'. Now Sid has confirmed that the actor is indeed a part of the film!
Currently riding high on the success of 'Kapoor & Sons' the young lad was quoted saying to a leading daily, "Scripting is in progress but it should be up and running next year. 'Aashiqui 2' had lots of love, angst and music. I'm looking forward to more."
To prep up for his role Sid will also be taking singing lessons and learning how to play a guitar. He said, "Mohit (director Mohit Suri) wants me to sing one song. This kind of prep is a given today. I have to get rhythm in my voice and fingers."
When asked if his leading lady Alia would be helping him with the prep since she's already a playback singer, he quipped “I hope so and if I can match up to her talent, maybe we could sing a duet, that would be a first for an actor and actress who've debuted together."
