It’s final. After the massive talent hunt for new faces to star in ‘Aashqui 2’, the sequel to the pioneering historic 1990 musical hit ‘Aashiqui’ which launched the careers of Rahul Roy and Anu Aggarwal and established Nadeem-Shravan among the most successful music-composing duos of all times, three people have been shortlisted to share the limelight in the new-age ‘Aashiqui’.
While the two guys in the love triangle would be played by Shaad Randhawa and Aditya Roy Kapoor, the girl who has bagged the female lead in ‘Aashiqui 2’ is none other than Shraddha Kapoor.
The pretty petite daughter of veteran villain Shakti Kapoor, Shraddha’s career has been suffering a string of false starts and glitches. Now, the Bhatts have taken charge of Shraddha’s career. Confirming her presence in ‘Aashiqui 2’, producer Mukesh Bhatt says, “Yes, Shraddha Kapoor is playing the lead with the two boys Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shaad Randhawa. We found her to be very talented. 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,” he added.
