T-Series and Vishesh Films Aashiqui 2 to release 26 April

NEW DELHI: The Mohit Suri-directed ‘Aashiqui 2‘ musical produced by T-Series and Vishesh Films is slated for release on 26 April.

While the musicial drama that released over two decades ago starred Rahul Roy and Anu Agarwal in career changing roles, the new installment stars Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapoor in the lead.

Says producer Mahesh Bhatt, "The franchise continues... the film is a completely brand new product with an extraordinary story. We will take the brand, not the story forward with an out-and-out love story."
Contrary to the reports, ‘Aashiqui 2‘ is not a sequel to ‘Aashiqui‘, Suri clarified. "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."

Talking about what can be expected from the film, producer Bhatt said, "It‘s a contemporary love story dealing with mature emotions. All three actors have extremely challenging dramatic roles. It is not a film about only looking good, singing and dancing. These are performance-oriented parts, and we are convinced that ‘Aashiqui 2‘ would do for Shraddha, Aditya and Shaad what the first ‘Aashiqui‘ did for Rahul, Anu and Deepak Taijori."

Keeping with the brand of the film, the music will remain a highlight with the first song Tum Hi Ho already making waves. According to producer Bhushan Kumar of T-Series, "We have already recorded many songs for ‘Aashiqui 2‘ and we are confident that the audience will enjoy them. But people insisted we bring back at least one song from the original. Whatever the outcome, the music will not disappoint."
