Mumbai, Oct 7: Lovers can not forget all time golden hit 'Aashique' or its hit songs. Now Mahesh Bhatt is coming with a sequel for the film and is titled 'Aashiqui-2'. The film's shooting is progressing at brisk pace. Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor are playing lead roles in this film. "Aashiqui 2" is to be helmed by Mohit Suri.
According to the latest information the film makers have decided to retain the title song "Sason Ki Zaroorat" from the original album, paying tribute to the film. Mahesh Bhatt who is producing the film confirmed the news saying, "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 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, T-Series - "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."
He goes on to add, "'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."
