Since a very long time there are rumours doing rounds that 'Aashiqui 3' is on cards. Buzz was Hrithik Roshan might play the male lead and names of several B-town actresses were doing rounds right from Sonam Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut to Alia Bhatt. While everyone is still wondering who will play the magical couple on the silver screen, here's the latest development.
As per a Mumbai Mirror, Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt are the forerunners in this love race. Producer Mahesh Bhatt confirmed the news and was quoted, " 'Aashiqui' is one of Vishesh Films and T-Series' most successful franchises and Mohit Suri will be returning as director. Right now it is work in progress, but I admit that based on the narrative, we have approached Sidharth and Alia to play the lead. But since both these actors are close to home, I would not like to proclaim from the rooftops just yet that it's a go-go till they officially sign the contract."
Currently Mohit is busy with 'Half Girlfriend'. On the other hand Sid and Alia are tied up with the promotions of 'Kapoor & Sons'.
