Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor starrer AASHIQUI 2 to release on 26th April 2013

By Glamsham Editorial

T-Series and Vishesh Films join hands yet again to take their successful musical franchise - AASHIQUI forward. While the musical drama that released over two decades ago starred Rahul Roy and Anu Agarwal in career changing roles, the latest installment, AASHIQUI 2, helmed by Mohit Suri stars Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapoor in the lead and will see its release on 26th April 2013.

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, clarifies director Mohit Suri "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 you can expect from the film says producer Mukesh Bhatt, "It's a contemporary love story dealing with mature emotions. All three actors have extremely challenging dramatic roles. It's not a film about only looking good, singing and dancing. These are performance-oriented parts, and we're convinced that AASHIQUI 2 would do for Shraddha, Aditya and Shaad what the first AASHIQUI did for Rahul, Anu and Deepak Tijori."

Keeping with the brand of the film, the music yet again continues to remain a highlight with the first song 'Tum Hi Ho' already making waves on the music front- Says producer Bhushan Kumar, T-Series "We've already recorded many songs for AASHIQUI 2 and we're 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."

Directed by Mohit Suri, starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor ,T-Series and Vishesh Films musical drama AASHIQUI 2 is scheduled to release 26th April 2013.
