Mahesh Bhatt conducted an open web search for auditioning newcomers for the sequel of his hit film Rahul Roy- Anu Agarwal starrer Aashiqui. There were many entries for the roles but the filmmaker found them to be not up to the mark. So he decided to cast some lesser known actors in the lead.
The film will now star Shraddha Kapoor, Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shaad Randhawa.
Shraddha Kapoor is the daughter of Shakti Kapoor and was last seen in Y-Film Luv Ka The End while Aditya Roy Kapoor starred in Woh Lamhe, Action Replay and Guzaarish. Shaad Randhawa is yesteryear actress Mumtaz’s nephew.
The music for the film will be composed by Jeet Ganguly. For the original Nadeem-Shravan were the music directors.
