'Aashiqui 2' music retains original flavour: Suri

Mumbai, Jan 8 (IANS) "Aashiqui 2" has 10 love songs, says director Mohit Suri and adds he has given the compositions a contemporary feel while retaining the flavour of the original movie's music.

Mahesh Bhatt had directed 1990 romantic musical hit "Aashiqui", with two new faces - Rahul Roy and Anu Agarwal in the lead roles. The film had 11 songs, including "Tu meri zindagi hai", "Ab tere bin" and "Nazar ke samne", and all were very popular with the masses.

"The film ('Aashiqui 2') has 10 love songs and we have tried to retain the feel of the previous film as well. But of course that film came out 21 years ago, so it can't be exactly the same," Suri, who is making the film with Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor in the cast, told IANS.

"The songs have a flavour of the previous film, but then we have tried to contemporarise it so that people can relate to it. Songs have been composed by different artists... we are on the last schedule of the shooting," he added.

Although "Aashqui 2" is in its last leg of shooting, its release date has not been confirmed yet.

When asked, Suri said: "(Producer) Mukesh Bhatt will be able to give you a better answer on the release date. I only make the film."
