New Delhi, Feb 7: Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, who is all set to make the sequel to his 1990 hit musical ‘Aashiqui', says the film was autobiographical as it was based on the story of his first love.
“The best kept secret about Aashiqui is that it is also an autobiographical film, as it deals with the story of my very first love,” Bhatt tweeted today.
‘Aashiqui', directed by Mahesh Bhatt and produced by Gulshan Kumar and Mukesh Bhatt, starred Anu Agarwal and Rahul Roy. The film was a commercial success and its songs became hugely popular.
Bhatt also revealed that the sequel to the film is the result of a dream he and record company owner Gulshan Kumar had seen years ago.
“'Make me a musical love story and I promise you that the movie will remain in the hearts of every Indian for decades to come..' he (Gulshan) said.
“21 yrs later, Bhushan Kumar and Mohit Suri have come together to dream the same dream that we did twenty one years ago,” Bhatt added.
“Aashiqui 2 will dare to rise up to the expectations ignited by this ageless musical and continue the legacy...”
