It is official by now that the third movie in the Aashiqui franchise will be made and would release the next year. Recent reports state that Mohit Suri will bid adieu to the movie and he won’t be directing the third part of the Aashiqui series. He won’t be a part of Aashiqui 3 after all. Aashiqui 2 had Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur in the lead roles and the movie was liked and appreciated by all. The music of the movie became an instant hit among the people. The movie was a huge box office hit and it performed very well at the box office and collected more than Rs 85 crore. It was then that the buzz regarding the making of a third part of the film is being planned. Reports also stated that apparently Hrithik Roshan has been approached for being casted in for the lead role in the movie while Deepika Padukone was also said to be roped in for playing the female lead role. But all these are mere rumors and nothing stands clear till now.
The good news is that Aashiqui 3 movie will be written by Shaheen Bhatt this time. While the sad news is that the director of Aashiqui 2 Mohit Suri, with the help of whom the movie was appreciated, may not direct Aashiqui 3. As per the rumours the director had actually demanded for a steep hike in his salary. After the success of Aashiqui 2, he felt that he deserved a hike as the movie was a super hit. And since this demand could not have been met in spite of constant efforts poured in by producers, Mahesh Bhatt and Bhushan Kumar, talks seem to have failed. Now the makers of the film are questing for another director to direct the project. Aashiqui 3 cast has yet not been finalized, but the makers are keen to rope in Hrithik Roshan for it. Mohit Suri had last directed Hamari Adhuri Kahani which tanked at the box office.
Apparently, Deepika Padukone might be roped in to play the lead in the film opposite Hrithik, if all goes well. We hope sincerely that the monetary issue is sorted between the producers of the franchise and Mohit and the way of Aashiqui 3 movie is without any hurdles. The movie is slated to release in 2016.
