The Night Manager, Aditya Roy Kapur's critically acclaimed OTT series, will return on June 30 with the second part of the first season. To discuss their upcoming second instalment, the team held a news conference in Mumbai. Anil Kapoor, Sobhita Dhulipala, and Tillotama Shome were present, as were the rest of the cast and crew, apart from Aditya.

At the event, Aditya's response to a question about Kartik Aaryan replacing him in Aashiqui 3 was the highlight of the evening. Speaking at the event, he remarked that when he first heard of Aashiqui 3, many people asked him whether he wanted to be a part of it. On the other hand, Aditya quipped that his character went for a long swim after the second instalment, citing that his character died by suicide. As a result, the actor doubts they will see this character in the third part. He continued by saying that he anticipates the movie with great anticipation. As a moviegoer, Aditya can't wait to see what they accomplish with the sequel. He is sure they will do an excellent job.

But it was Anil Kapoor's reply that everyone was talking about. Anil responded to Aditya's answer with a joke that Aashiqui 4 is being made with him. The onlookers were greatly amused.

Aashiqui 3, starring Kartik and including a remix of the classic 1990s song Aashiqui, Ab Tere Bin Jee Lenge Hum, was revealed last year. Anurag Basu is serving as the film's director. There has been no news about the film's female lead yet. Despite this, Mukesh Bhatt said in an interview that the project is seeking a new lead actor.

Fans of Aashiqui 2 praised the film's music and lauded Aditya and Shraddha Kapoor's on-screen chemistry. The film has now been out for ten years. As a result, Part 3 has some lofty expectations to live up to.
