‘Aashiqui 2′ shooting to start from next monthJuly 4th, 2012 - 4:15 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, July 4 (IANS) Filmmaker Mohit Suri will start shooting for “Aashiqui 2″ from next month with Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapoor in the lead roles, and says that the musical is not a sequel to 1990 hit romantic saga “Aashiqui”.
Sharing the information, Suri told IANS ” ‘Aashiqui 2′ will go on floors by next month. We are planning to shoot the film in Goa, Mumbai and Cape Town”.
He also said that “Aashiqui 2″ is “not a sequel” to ‘Aashiqui’.
“It’s a new story. The only similarity is the music and the love story. There are seven to eight songs in the film. It’s a musical.”
Directed by Mahesh Bhatt, Rahul Roy and Anu Agarwal starrer “Aashiqui” was not only a box office success, all the songs from the film, including “Ek sanam chahiye” and “Nazar ke saamne jigar ke”, were super hits.
Earlier, Suri had announced that he would make the film with fresh faces.
Giving reasons for casting Shradha and Aditya, he said: “Earlier, we were planning to launch fresh star cast, but it didn’t work. As far as these two are concerned, they have just done two to three films. They both fit the bill perfectly.”
