“After finishing a few portions in Cape Town, we are presently shooting in Goa. It’s a non-stop shoot till December. I believe our next schedule will be in Mumbai,” Suri told IANS, adding he was planning to wrap up the film by the end of the year.
“We are planning for an early 2013 release,” he said
Produced by Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt, “Aashiqui 2″ stars Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapoor.
Contrary to the reports, “Aashiqui 2″ is not a sequel to “Aashiqui”, clarified Suri and added: “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.”
The original “Aashiqui” starring Rahul Roy and Anu Agarwal was directed by Mahesh Bhatt. It came out in 1990 and was not only a box office success, but all its songs, including “Ek sanam chahiye” and “Nazar ke saamne jigar ke”, were chartbusters.
