MUMBAI (Web Desk) – The third installment of Bollywood’s hit franchise Aashiqui is in the works and it turns out that rumored lovebirds Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra will be replacing the former on-screen couple Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapoor.

Mumbai Mirror reported Sidharth as saying, “Scripting is in progress but it should be up and running next year. Aashiqui 2 had lots of love, angst and music. I’m looking forward to more.”


He said that to convincingly pass off as a singer, he had been taking singing lessons. “Mohit (director Mohit Suri) wants me to sing one song,” he revealed, adding that learning to play the guitar was a prerequisite for the role. “This kind of prep is a given today. I have to get rhythm in my voice and fingers.”

When asked if Alia is going to help with the prep since she is already a playback singer, Sid responded, “I hope so and if I can match up to her talent, maybe we could sing a duet, that would be a first for an actor and actress who’ve debuted together.”
