When Aashiqui 3 will go on floors is still not decided. Mohit is making minor tweaks in Sidharth Malhotra’s character in the film.
What is special about the third part in Aashiqui franchise is the fact that the story is being penned by Alia Bhatt’s elder sister, Shaheen Bhatt. After debuting with Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year in 2012, Alia Bhatt will finally do a film for her home banner. With Mahesh Bhatt being the producer, Mohit Suri as the director, Shaheen Bhatt being the story writer and Alia Bhatt being the star, Aashiqui 3 is surely gonna be a big family affair for the Bhatts.
