Producer Mukesh Bhatt said: “Evening of August 16, 1990, one day before Aashiqui, Gulshanji and I were very nervous, the next day records were broken and history was made. Today, together with Bhushan, Pritam, Anurag and the heart thief of the Kartik nation, I assure everyone that Aashiqui 3 will celebrate love like never before.
Producer Bhushan Kumar said, “The movies whose story and music have etched our hearts, it’s time to relive them again! We are delighted to announce Aashiqui 3 in collaboration with Mukesh Ji, directed by my all-time favorite Dada Anurag Basu. The film is sure to have a fresh side while retaining the true essence! We couldn’t have found a better actor than Kartik, a true rockstar in every way after the massive hits he delivered; it really fits a T! The music is an integral part of this romantic musical, with Pritam we aim to raise the bar. Working with such a dream team is something I personally look forward to and can’t wait to recreate some magic again.
Playing the lead role, actor Kartik Aaryan said, “The timeless classic Aashiqui is something i grew up watching and working on Aashiqui 3 is like a dream come true! I feel privileged but grateful to collaborate with Bhushan Sir and Mukesh Sir for this opportunity. I’ve been a huge fan of Anurag Sir’s work and collaborating with him on this one has definitely shaped me in so many ways.
Director Anurag Basu said, “Working with Vishesh’s films is literally like coming home and I’m happy to realize Aashiqui 3! Bhushan ji and I have a long-standing relationship and each outing together is even more exciting than the last – he is a solid collaborator who I am truly privileged to have by my side. Aashiqui and Aashiqui 2 were emotions for fans that have remained in hearts to this day, the goal is to carry the legacy forward in the best way possible. This would be my first adventure with Kartik Aaryan who is known for his hard work, dedication, courage and determination towards his work and I am really looking forward to this one.
Music composer Pritam said: “The Aashiqui is known for its absolutely awesome music and I’m really happy to be a part of this amazing franchise and will try to take it to the next level.
