Reports began doing rounds over the weekend that Jennifer Winget had been cast the female lead in Aashiqui 3, which stars Kartik and is directed by Anurag Basu. The film was announced recently on social media. On Wednesday, Anurag denied the rumours in a statement. Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared that statement on Twitter. “Team #Aashiqui3 has issued a statement vis-à-vis casting of the leading lady: "The search for leading lady is still ongoing... We would love to share the news with fans as early as possible [as and when finalized],” he wrote.

Sharing this tweet, Gulshan Devaiah wrote, “I offer myself for the position of “Leading Lady” Dhamaka kardenge dono bhai milke pichchar mey likhk ke le loh (Both brothers will kill it together, take it from me in writing).”

Gulshan’s witty remark had fans in splits. One fan wrote, “I guess it would be a perfect casting for Dostana 2.” The now-shelved Dostana 2 as initially supposed to star Kartik alongside Janhvi Kapoor and Laksh Lalwani. Gulshan, for his part, was recently seen in Badhaai Do, where he and Rajkummar Rao played a same-sex couple.
