While she has already entered the playback singing scene with the cover versions of a few songs in her films, Alia Bhatt will now play the role even on screen. Earlier we had reported that the Bhatt camp is all set to take forward their musical franchise Aashiqui with its third instalment. And not surprisingly, this time a Bhatt girl will play the leading lady.
Alia Bhatt will play a singer in Aashiqui 3 revealed her cousin and filmmaker Mohit Suri. He further also mentioned that he is making minor changes in Sidharth’s character as of now. Alia has been paired opposite her two film co-star Sidharth Malhotra in the film and what makes it even more special is that her sister Shaheen Bhatt has written the script.
Almost a year ago, there were speculations about Hrithik Roshan and Sonam Kapoor coming together for the musical. But soon Sidharth announced his association with the franchise and also about his onscreen pairing with Alia Bhatt.
For the uninitiated, the first film Aashiqui (1990) starred Rahul Roy and Anu Aggarwal while the second film Aashiqui 2 (2013) had Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor playing protagonists. The music of both the films topped the charts the year they were released and continue to retain ‘chartbuster’ status.
