Bringing back romantic melodies in a huge way, T-Series & Vishesh Films with their next venture, the sequel to the 1990's hit Aashiqui, promise to not disappoint audiences with the music of the film that will be reminiscent of the blockbuster album.
In fact the makers have also decided to retain the title song 'Sason Ki Zaroorat' from the original album, paying tribute to the film.
Confirms producer Mahesh Bhatt, "Nostalgia is a deadly 'drug'. And when a super hit song like this is used to evoke nostalgia it can set the box office ablaze. Our single objective of Aashiqui 2 is to make sure that the musical score of this film beats the record created by Aashiqui. I am certain using this track will do that trick."
Says producer Bhushan Kumar, "We've already recorded many songs for Aashiqui 2 and we're confident that the audience will enjoy them. But people insisted we bring back at least one song from the original. Using older tracks in films has anyway become a trend."
In the day and age of remixes, ask the music-honcho if they plan on going the same route with the song and he is quick to reply, "'Sason Ki Zaroorat' is a beautiful track. You can't remix it. But we will recreate it, keeping the lyrics and the basic tune intact. We will rearrange the rhythm and make it more electronic to make it appealing for today's generation."
Directed by Mohit Suri, starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor, T-Series & Vishesh Films musical drama Aashiqui 2 is currently being shot in South Africa.
