Director Chandrakala, who is presently in news for naming her Kannada movie as Aashiqui 3, has roped in a Kannada superstar for the important role in her film. The movie, which is likely to go on floors shortly, will see Karunada Chakravarthy Shivaraj Kumar in the cameo role.
Aashiqui 3, which features newbies Adarsh Kumar and Sandeep in the lead roles, is based on the journey from Bangalore to Kullu Manali. Sangeetha Bhat will be seen in the female lead in the film, which is likely to be shot in 20 days.
Confirming the news of Shivaraj Kumar playing cameo role in Aashiqui 3, director Chandrakala said, "Yes, I have asked Shivanna to play a cameo in the movie, but I'm yet to get a green signal from him. I have also approached two other well-known actors to play cameos, but I don't wish to reveal their names now."
Clearing the speculations behind naming her movie as Aashiqui 3, Chandrakala has said that her movie has nothing to do with Hindi movies Aashiqui and Aashiqui 2. "I wanted to use the title Aashiqui for my film, but since there are two Hindi films with the same title, I had to settle with Aashiqui 3. It has no connection to the Hindi films. My title is most suitable to the story," adds Chandrakala, who will be editing the movie online.
