New Delhi: To make a film with the title 'Aashiqui 2' is not an easy thing as this name carries a baggage of superhit songs and innocent romance. However, director Mohit Suri seems to have won the first round because the songs of 'Aashiqui 2' have become chartbusters, but the real test of the film is going to happen in the public's court.
Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor are playing the lead roles in 'Aashiqui 2' which has the world of music in the backdrop.
So far, Aditya and Shraddha have not received commercial success despite being praised for their acting in different films but this time they won't have anyone to blame as they are going to be seen in almost every scene of the film.
'Woh Lamhe' displayed Mohit Suri's capabilities to handle intense themes, so there is no harm in expecting a good film from him again.
Shomini Sen of IBNLIve live tweets the experience of 'Aashiqui 2'.
