On September 20, 2011, we told you that Aashiqui 2 was on its way. However, the Bhatt brothers Mahesh and Mukesh were still to decide the one man they could trust with the sequel to their 1990 blockbuster. And now, after several meetings and numerous names being considered, Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt have reportedly, decided to hand the directorial reins over to their trusted lieutenant Mohit Suri.
According to sources from the industry, Vishal Mahadkar was earlier supposed to direct the sequel to Aashiqui. However, Bhatt favourite Suri has now replaced him. As for the lead couple, new faces are being sought.
A source close to the project informed Mumbai Mirror, “Aashiqui was made in partnership by Vishesh Films and T Series. It was the biggest hit that year. The film catapulted the careers of lead actors Rahul Roy and Anu Agarwal. It also made Nadeem Shravan the most sought after music composers. The film won several awards. However, it was also the last film that the Bhatts did in association with T-Series. The two production houses are coming together again after over twenty years. The Bhatts are launching a nationwide hunt for the male and female lead in the film.”
When contacted, Mahesh Bhatt confirmed the news and said, “Earlier we had finalised Vishal for the project. But now we have scrapped that idea and found a fresh one. That’s why after Murder 2, we got Mohit to direct the film.”
