For Aashiqui 3, a number of women’s names were being considered, including Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone. Speaking up about what’s going on behind closed doors is Mukesh Bhatt!
The lead actress for Anurag Basu’s Aashiqui 3, which is anticipated to begin production in the new year, is still up in the air.
Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif were two names that were being discussed. Fatima Sana Shaikh was recently said to have been the selected one.
Producer of Aashiqui Mukesh Bhatt has the following to say about the elusive heroine in Aashiqui 3: “No, it is not the actress you’ve named (Fatima Sana Sheikh). I have no idea how that got there.
Mukesh Bhatt protests, “We’ve locked in the hero, and everyone knows it is Kartik Aaryan. The crucial casting of the female lead is going to happen only after we complete the script. Without locking in the script a film is nothing. I’ve never been a proposal maker. I make cinema. For me, the script comes first and then the cast. Also, the music is very essential to the Aashiqui series. The songs took Part 1 and Part 2 to great heights. We want an equally outstanding music score in Aashiqui 3.”
As for the leading lady, Mukesh Bhatt lets out, “I will share something with you: we are actually thinking of introducing a new girl with Kartik in Aashiqui 3. The fresh faces had worked big time in the first Aashiqui film and of course the music. We will most probably cast a new girl. But as I said, we’re in no hurry. Let the script be completed first.”
