In the poster of Aashiqui 2, the girl under the jacket is not the film’s leading lady Shraddha Kapoor but director Mohit Suri’s lucky charm Smiley Suri.
Yes! You heard it right. Smiley Suri, who debuted in 2005 superhit flick Kalyug is the one who is under the jacket, in the poster.
However, Shraddha Kapoor is the films female lead, while Aditya Roy Kapoor plays her love interest.
Smiley told: “Yes, it’s me in the poster. When Mohit decided to make the film, he didn’t have a face for the film, so he requested me if I could pose for the poster. So the poster where the girl is wearing a dress, it’s me. Mahesh Bhatt (who had produced and directed the original) wanted the poster to be the same as ‘Aashiqui’ so they requested me to pose for a picture under the jacket.”
“The girl in the sari is not me, it’s Shraddha. But the girl in the dress, which is there in the CDs, it’s me. Mohit considers me as his lucky charm and I can never say no to him. I have been assisting him since ‘Zehar’, so in each film I try to contribute my bit for him.”
“Aashiqui 2” is a music-based romantic films just like “Aashiqui”. However, its not a sequel to the latter. “Aashiqui 2” hits theaters on April 26.
