‘Aashiqui 2’ to retain the hit song `Sason Ki Zaroorat`: Mahesh Bhatt
New Delhi: The first film was directed by Mahesh Bhatt and starred Rahul Roy, Anu Agarwal and Deepak Tijori.
"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," Bhatt said.
‘Aashiqui 2’ is being directed by Mohit Suri and stars Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor. It is currently being shot in South Africa.
"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," said producer Bhushan Kumar, T-Series.
"`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," he added.
