Aashiqui 2 to be directed by Mohit Suri

              You may recall that the 90s era was called the musical era. One of the films that contributed majorly towards this was the musical smash hit Aashiqui that made overnight superstars out of Rahul Roy, Anu Agarwal and music composers Nadeem-
Shravan. As the current trend of sequels and remakes go, this film too was under consideration for long to be remade. But the makers of the film were stuck up with the man who will be wielding the directors' hat.

Initially, it was the debutante director Vishal Mahadkar who was the chosen one by the Bhatts, but now, the latest development is that he has now been replaced by their blue eyed boy Mohit Suri. Mahesh Bhatt has gone on record to say that they had earlier finalized Vishal for the project, but now they have scrapped that idea and found a fresh one. And that's the reason that, post Murder 2, they got Mohit to direct the film. He also added that they will be launching a new boy and new girl with the film. And for that, a massive hunt is in the process of being launched.

Aashiqui 2 will also see the coming together of the Bhatts with the music label T-Series after over twenty years, since Aashiqui was also the last film that the Bhatts did in association with them. With the BO record and the cult status that Aashiqui has, it's needless to say that all the eyes will now be on Mohit Suri, if he will be able to recreate the same magic.
