Ashiqui 2

Aashiqui 2 is a 2013 Bollywood romantic musical drama film directed by Mohit Suri. Starring Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead roles, it was produced by Bhushan Kumar and Mukesh Bhatt under the T-Series and Vishesh Films banners. Set in the early 2010s, Aashiqui 2 is a love story centering around the turbulent relationship between musicians Rahul and Arohi, a relationship which is affected by Rahul\'s issues with alcohol abuse and temperament. The film is an uncredited remake of American musical film A Star Is Born, which was remade two times earlier in Hollywood itself. Aashiqui 2 is more closer to the 1976 version, although exclusive sequences from all the three versions can also be spotted.
The film is the sequel to the 1990 musical blockbuster Aashiqui, and initially caused concern in the Indian media that the film could live up to the high standards and success of the original. Production of Aashiqui 2 began in 2011, with the principal photography taking place in Cape Town, Goa and Mumbai on a budget of INR9 crore (US$1.5 million). The film which premiered on 26 April 2013 received a positive to mixed critical reception and became a major commercial success at the box-office despite featuring newcomers, earning INR100 crore (US$17 million) worldwide within the first four weeks. It was declared as a blockbuster by Box Office India after its three-week box office run, and is currently the third-highest grossing Hindi film of 2013 and the highest grossing film ever produced by Vishesh Films.[2] Box Office India called it the biggest surprise success of the year due to the magnitude of its\' success. [3] The soundtrack to the film became very popular after its release; the songs \"Tum Hi Ho\" and \"Sun Raha Hai\" topped the charts across various platforms in India.

Production

In September 2011, the Indian media reported that Mahesh Bhatt and Bhushan Kumar were keen to remake the 1990 musical blockbuster Aashiqui. Kumar approached Bhatt for a possible sequel, although it was Shagufta Rafique\'s melodramatic adapted screenplay from A Star Is Born, which persuaded him that the film had potential as a sequel and decided to proceed with the project. Given Aashiqui \'s status in Hindi cinematic history as one of the finest Indian musicals of all time, many expressed concerns towards the decision to remake the film, dubious that the producers could come up with a soundtrack on par with the quality of the 1990 film. Bhatt stated that they completely resisted the temptation to use the soundtrack of the earlier film, and promised that Aashiqui 2 would revive the era of melodious film music, as Aashiqui had done 22 years ago.


Filming

Principal photography for the film began in October 2012 with film\'s lead cast. The film was shot in Goa, Mumbai and Cape Town. During the filming in South Africa, Shraddha Kapoor needed medical attention after kneeling on broken glass fragments during the scene in which she had to kneel on the floor and talk to her co-star Aditya Roy Kapoor. Aditya Roy Kapoor also received burns to his hand during the filming of the scene in which they light some Chinese lanterns in Cape Town.

Box office

On its opening day, Aashiqui 2 collected about INR5.25 crore (US$890,000) and collected INR17.92 crore (US$3.0 million) during its first weekend. The film collected INR34.65 crore (US$5.9 million) in its first week. In the second week, despite new releases, it collected INR17.35 crore (US$2.9 million), which took its two-week box-office collections to INR52 crore (US$8.8 million). The film remained steady on weekdays and collected INR90.50 crore (US$15 million) in its third week and total collections rose to INR90.50 crore (US$15 million). The film had the highest third week collections of 2013 to that date. The film\'s revenues remained consistent in its fourth weekend and took its total to INR71 crore (US$12 million). Box Office India declared the film a blockbuster after its three-week box office run. As of 20 May, the film was the second-highest grossing Hindi film of 2013 and the highest-grossing film produced by Vishesh Films. According to Box Office India, Aashiqui 2 is the best trending film at the box office since 3 Idiots as the fourth week\'s collections were nearly INR7.50 crore (US$1.3 million) nett, which was more than every film released in the last ten years apart from 3 Idiots.

As per updates, the film has grossed a humongous INR85.40 crore (US$14 million) after an unimaginable 11 week run.Internationally, the film collected around US$150,000 over the first weekend because its limited release meant the film was only released in UAE and Pakistan.

kuch aisi cheeze hai jisse hum paiso se nahi kharid sakte
usme se 1 hamara bachpan hai
apne jeevan ke sabse hassen palo ko khul ke jeyo
happy childrens day...

Bin savan barsat nahi hoti,
Suraj dube bina raat nahi hoti,
kya kare ab kuch aise halat hai,
aapki yaad aaye bina din ki shuruat nahi hoti.
Good Morning!
