Aashiqui 3 is one of the most-awaited projects. In 2022, Kartik Aaryan shared a motion poster of Aashiqui 3 and expressed his excitement over working for the first time with Anurag Basu.  The motion poster also had singer Arijit Singh's voice singing 'Ab tere bin jee lenge hum,' leaving fans thrilled. However, it seems the makers have shelved Aashiqui 3.

As per the latest reports, the makers have put all rumours to rest surrounding Aashiqui 3. T-Series issued a statement and clarified that it is not involved in the production of Kartik Aaryan's Aashiqui 3.

The statement read, “If and when Aashiqui 3 is initiated, T-Series and Vishesh Films/Mukesh Bhatt being joint owners in the franchise, shall produce it jointly only. We categorically deny any ongoing rumours suggesting that Aashiqui 3 is being produced under a different title by T-Series. Our proposed film to be directed by Anurag Basu is neither Aashiqui 3 nor part of the Aashiqui franchise." (sic)

Well, this statement will leave many disheartened who are eagerly waiting for Aashiqui 3.

Earlier, after announcing Aashiqui 3, Kartik told Variety, "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 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 definitely shape me in many ways.”

Even filmmaker Anurag Basu told Variety, “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.”

Earlier, reports were abuzz that the makers have changed the title of Aashiqui 3 to 'Tu Aashiqui Hai'. Moreover, it was also claimed that the movie's plot is inspired by1981 Hindi flick Basera, starring Shashi Kapoor, Rekha, and Rakhee. The makers have planned to go on the floors later this year. Even speculations were rife that Triptii Dimri has been locked as the lady lead in the flick and will be seen romancing Kartik Aaryan and the makers are searching for the second female lead.

However, the recent clarification from the makers has put all rumours surrounding the movie to rest.
