Aditya Roy Kapur: 'I landed 'Aashiqui 2' role because I met Mohit Suri in chappals and shorts'

Actor Aditya Roy Kapur, who will be next seen opposite Shraddha Kapoor in Bhatt camp flick Aashiqui 2 claims that his casual attire helped him land the role in the film.

Elaborating on how this happened, Aditya said, “I was shooting for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani  when I got a call that the Bhatt team is looking for an actor to cast in Aashiqui 2. I came to Mumbai and met the team and we had a great interaction. When I had to meet director Mohit Suri, I landed for the meeting in chappals and shorts and Suri later said that he cast me because I did not land up to meet him wearing a tight T-shirt or dressed up like a 'hero'.”

A former VJ, Kapur made his acting debut in London Dreams and was last seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Guzaarish.
