Aashiqui 3 'song leak' triggers discussion on Arijit Singh; watch
The 2013 romantic movie 'Aashiqui 2' was a Hindi-language musical drama directed by Mohit Suri and produced by Mukesh Bhatt. It was a successor to the 1990 film 'Aashiqui'.
Last year, there was an announcement about 'Aashiqui 3', the third installment in the series, with Kartik Aaryan as the male lead and Anurag Basu as the director. However, there have been no updates about the film in the past one year, and the film's progress remains unknown.
However, recently, a viral video shared on a Reddit subgroup called BollyBlindsNGossip claims that the first song from 'Aashiqui 3' has been leaked, featuring Arijit Singh as the lead vocalist.
This has led some netizens to express their frustration with Arijit's voice, with comments like, "Isn't anyone tired of Arijit's voice?" and "Arijit should take a break; I'm tired of him."
However, a fan club of music composer Pritam on Reddit has confirmed that the clip is fake.
They stated on X, "It's a fake song alert! Pritam Dada hasn't even started working on #Aashiqui3, so no song could have leaked. We have confirmation from Pritam himself. Don't believe everything posted on social media blindly."
As of now, there has been no response from Pritam, Arijit Singh, or Anurag Basu regarding this leaked clip circulating on the internet.
