India, Jan. 9 -- The third installment of Murder franchise is here and this time with triple the thrill! The trailer of Murder 3 shows Randeep Hooda romancing with both Aditi Rao Hydari and Sara Loren. The two-minute clip gives a hint to the murder mystery. Randeep Hooda is playing a photographer and hooks up with Sara Loren or Mona Laizza. Things turn ugly after she moves in with him in his palatial house outside of the city.
Aditi Rao Hydari, who is playing Randeep Hooda's former girlfriend, haunts them.

While their last joint venture Raaz 3, set a benchmark in the horror genre, the producers with Murder 3 this time around, promise to thrill audiences with the Randeep Hooda, Aditi Rao Hydari starrer that tells the tale of the unraveling of a mysterious disappearance, all told in true Bhatt style.

Esha Gupta was original choice for Murder 3
Aditi Rao Hydari was not the original choice for Bhatt Camp's much awaited next, Murder 3. It was their latest blue eyed girl, Esha Gupta who was offered the film first. The newbie who has signed a three film deal with Vishesh films was seen in Jannat 2 and is also starring in Raaz 3.
If you are wondering why the leggy lissome opted out of such a huge franchise, here is the dope. An insider reveals, "Esha was the first choice of Bhatt's for the film. The reason she didn't do it is because her favourite writer Shagufta Rafique, who has written both her earlier films, is not writing this one. Also Mahesh Bhatt who has been involved in all the Vishesh films may not be able to mentor this one." FULL STORY
