Chocolate boy of Bollywood Kartik Aaryan is all set to feature in Aashiqui 3. The actor has called ‘the timeless classic Aashiqui’ something he grew up watching. The third installment of the hit franchise Aashiqui will be directed by Anurag Basu.
The female lead of the movie is yet to be disclosed. In a recent interview, Kartik also called himself a big fan of Anurag Basu.
Aashiqui (1990) backed by T-Series was directed by none other than Mahesh Bhatt. Rahul Roy and Anu Aggarwal played the lead roles.

“The timeless classic Aashiqui is something I grew up watching and working on Aashiqui 3 is like a dream come true. I feel privileged yet grateful for collaborating with Bhushan Kumar and Mukesh Bhatt for this opportunity. I’ve been a big fan of Anurag Basu’s work and collaborating with him on this one will shape me in many ways.”
Anurag also talked about the upcoming project,
“Aashiqui and Aashiqui 2 were emotions for the fans that have remained in their hearts to date, the aim is to carry the legacy ahead in the best possible way. It’d be my first venture with Kartik Aaryan, who is known for his hard work, dedication, grit, and determination towards his work and I’m truly looking forward to this one.”
Taking his Instagram, Kartik also shared a group photo. The photo featured Kartik along with Anurag, music composer Pritam, Mukesh Bhatt, and Bhushan Kumar.
