There may still be a search for the female lead in the Kartik Aaryan-starring movie Aashiqui 3, and it appears that a fresh actor has entered the fray. Actor Gulshan Devaiah jokingly stated on Thursday that he wanted to be Kartik’s “main lady” in the movie. Gulshan made his statement after the movie’s producers refuted rumours and claims that Jennifer Winget had been chosen to play the female protagonist.
Over the weekend, rumours spread that Jennifer Winget had been chosen as the female lead in the Kartik-starring, Anurag Basu-helmed Aashiqui 3 film. On social media, the movie was recently announced. Anurag issued a denial of the rumours on Wednesday. Taran Adarsh, a film trade analyst, tweeted that assertion. Team #Aashiqui3 has released a statement regarding the casting of the leading lady, saying that the hunt is still ongoing. As soon as the information is decided, we would want to inform the fans,” he wrote.
“I offer myself for the role of “Leading Lady” Dhamaka kardenge dono bhai milke pichchar mey likhk ke le loh (Both brothers will kill it jointly, take it from me in writing”),” Gulshan Devaiah commented in response to this tweet.
The release date for Aashiqui 3 was Monday, September 5. Pritam will compose the score for the third instalment of the popular series.
