Interestingly, Smiley Suri has posed for the Aashiqui 2 poster because she is director Mohit Suri's lucky charm. To say more, the forthcoming romantic musical saga, however, has Shraddha Kapoor as the female lead, while Aditya Roy Kapur plays her love interest.
Smiley had debuted in 2005 with her brother Mohit's second directorial venture Kalyug, about the pornography industry, and the film turned out to be a huge success at the box office.
Smiley says that it's herself in the poster and the fact remain that when Mohit decided to make the film, he didn't have a face for the film, so he requested her if she could pose for the poster. So there it's herself.
Fact-fully, Mahesh Bhatt (who had produced and directed the original) wanted the poster to be the same as Aashiqui so they requested her to pose for a picture under the jacket.
"The girl in the sari is not herself but it's Shraddha. But the girl in the dress and there in the CDs, it's me. Mohit considers herself as his lucky charm and she can never say no to him while continues saying that she have been assisting him since Zehar, so in each film she try to contribute her bit for him.
As a concluding fact, Aashiqui 2 is not a sequel to Aashiqui having the only similarity is that both are music-based romantic films.
The film is being co-produced by Mukesh Bhatt and Bhushan Kumar and looking forward for an April 26 release.
Hope the film would gain similar applauds and popularity as in case of earlier Aashiqui being a musical blockbuster.
All the very best for Aashiqui 2!
