The two heroes in the love triangle will be played by Shaad Randhawa and Aditya Roy Kapoor, and the girl will be played by Shraddha Kapoor.
The pretty daughter of actor Shakti Kapoor, Shraddha. Shradha was supposed to play the lead opoosite Prateik in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's production of My Friend Pinto. The role passed on to Kalki Koechlin and Shraddha ended up doing the Yash Raj film Luv Ka The End, which did nothing for her career.
Now, the Bhatts have taken charge of Shraddha's career.
Mukesh Bhatt says. "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. "Aashiqui 2 is not a remake of any of our films," he says. "It's an original script .It's a contemporary love story dealing with mature emotions."
Movie Review:- Aashiqui 2 is about two singers in love. It's an interesting scenario and Suri and his actors set it up well. The rockstar angle in Hindi movies always has touches of unintentional comedy - note Rahul's headgear, the stadiums filled with swooning fans and a hilariously slimy journalist in the second half who pushes Rahul to the brink again - but despite this, Aditya gives Rahul's angst a certain charm.
Direction, Performance and Music:- Aashiqui 2 has not one impressive quality in it when it comes to direction. Aditya Roy Kapur was conspicuously noticeable because of his obvious good looks and an impressive repertoire. Surprisingly, the script has kept the love story independent of Rahul’s self loathing tendencies. The plot has been written from an enlightened perspective which does understand the necessity of coming of age in terms of ideas.
Overall:- You will not like this if die-hard romantic films don't leave you enthused or entertained.
