The news of Deepika Padukone and Hrithik Roshan working in a film has been doing the rounds ever since the two were spotted partying together at one of Aamir Khan's festive bashes last year. The speculations continue as fresh reports suggest they might star together in "Aashiqui 3".

According to Absolute India News' sources, makers are interested in roping in Deepika as the lead.

This could be an interesting association given the nature of stories previous films were shaped around. Tragic love story mixed with some soul-stirring music – a perfect recipe for a blockbuster.

The chances of the honey-eyed superstar signing on the dotted line slightly increases considering he recently shot for the remixed version of "Dheere Dheere Se" song alongside Sonam Kapoor in Turkey.

While an official announcement is yet to be made, the possibility of witnessing Hrithik romancing Deepika on the big screen is too tempting to let go.

"Aashiqui" and "Aashiqui 2" have both been huge hits and are still remembered for their melodious albums.

In other news, Hrithik will next be seen in Ashutosh Gowariker's "Mohenjo Daro" and Deepika will essay the role of a warrior princess in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus "Bajirao Mastani".
