Dismissing reports that director Mohit Suri has walked out of “Aashiqui 3” over money issues, producer Mukesh Bhatt says work on the romantic-drama is in process. Earlier there were reports that Suri, who helmed films like “Aashiqui 2”, “Woh Lamhe”, “Murder 2” for the Bhatt camp, was unhappy with his remuneration. He had reportedly parted ways with them when they did not agree to pay what Suri wanted for “Aashiqui 3”.
When asked about it, Mukesh said, “Absolutely wrong. The reports are baseless. He is very much a part of ‘Aashiqui 3’. The work for the film is in process.”
“Aashiqui 2”, starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor, went on to become one of the biggest hits of 2013. Mohit’s next film “Ek Villain”, produced by Ekta Kapoor, also turned out to be blockbuster. His last film was Emraan Hashmi-Vidya Balan starrer “Hamari Adhuri Kahani”, produced by the Bhatts.
