While the original Aashiqui (1990) starred Rahul Roy and Anu Aggarwal, Aashiqui 2 released in 2013 and made stars out of Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor.
"In my knowledge no 'Aashiqui 3' is happening right now. I am not offered anything like that," Alia told reporters while promoting her upcoming film Kapoor & Sons in Delhi.
Directed by Shakun Batra, the film also stars Sidharth Malhotra and Fawad Khan.Asked why they always have a third party whenever they romance on-screen, Alia said, "It is not a love triangle. It is about family, relationships, it is about a grandfather (Rishi Kapoor), who wants to bring his family together. There is a love angle but the plot of the film is about a family."
Her co-star Sidharth added, "It is just a coincidence that there is always another actor, whenever me and Alia are paired on-screen. But to clear the air surrounding the film, it is not a love triangle. We all are playing very small part in this ensemble. It is the story of a family. I am confident that people will relate to it."
Alia also added that the team is not aiming to get into Rs 100 crore club, "This is a very simple film. It does not have any action or major cast and big budget that we would pray for it to get into Rs 100 crore club. But yes we do want it to be successful. We want people to enjoy the film and relate with the characters and their stories."
