Aashiqui 2, starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor, made a mark on people’s minds with its soulful music and heartbreaking love story. While there was a buzz that Bhatts were gearing up for a third part with Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt. But now it seems, it will not be Sidharth but Varun Dhawan who will be seen along with Alia in the romantic drama.
Varun and Alia have acted together before in Student of The Year, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya and Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya. The duo has a strong fan base, owing to their sizzling chemistry.
A source close to the production house said, “There is a huge fanbase for Alia and Varun. Their fans even call them Varia or Valia. All their films have been hit. It’s only obvious for Vishesh Films to confirm this hit pairing for the third film in the series. Music will again play a key role in the film.”
On the same, filmmaker Mohit Suri had earlier commented, “It’s a loved franchise but it should come back for the right reason, which is the script. I would’ve made ‘Aashiqui 2’ even if it would’ve been called ‘RJ ki ek love story’. I wanted to make the film badly and tell the story. You shouldn’t make a film because you want to capitalise on a title. You can get the film to the audience but you can’t make them like it. I can lose everything I built with ‘Aashiqui 2’ by making a bad Aashiqui 3.”
Alia is busy with Gully Boy and Brahmastra, and Varun is still shooting for Sui Dhaaga.
