Kartik Aaryan starrer Aashiqui 3 has been in the news ever since Anurag Basu confirmed the film. Recently, it was reported that the upcoming sequel will be the remake of the 1981 classic Baseraa after late producer Ramesh Behl's family sent T-Series a legal notice claiming the remake. However, now T-Series has issued a statement denying the reports and shared that they will soon reply to the notice they received.

Baseraa, helmed by Ramesh Talwar, starred Rekha, Shashi Kapoor, and Raakhee in the lead roles. The movie was a hit at the box office, and the lead actor's performance was much praised. Upon seeing the positive response, the film was remade in Telugu as Thodu Needa (1983), in Tamil as Kanmaniye Pesu (1986), and in Kannada as Suvvi Suvvalaali (1998).
