Aww how sweet! Mohit Suri says that Aashiqui 2 is all thanks to the unconditional love that his wife Udita Goswami showers on him daily.
Mohit Suri also confesses, “We had this wise idea of launching a nationwide talent for new faces in Aashiqui 2. That idea fell flat on its face. The youngsters who came forward were not good enough and some who were promising agreed to download their videos for a screen-test only if we promised them a role. So we gave up.”
“Then I saw Aditya’s pictures. When I met him, I was convinced he was my Rahul Jaikar. Unlike the other aspirants, he didn’t meet me dressed like a star reeking of expensive perfume. Some of them even had their eyebrows done! Aditya came in his shorts. He just told me honestly, ‘My brother (producer Siddharth Roy Kapoor) says you’re a good director.’ Aditya Roy Kapoor was not aware of the impact of the original Aashiqui. So, he responded to my script and his characters without any baggage. That tilted the scale in his favour. Also, Aditya used to be a lead singer in a band, he knows how to play the guitar, so playing a musician came naturally to him.”
