KOLKATA: Bollywood actors and on-screen couple Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapoor are leaving no stone unturned to promote their film ‘Aashiqui 2. The duo was seen promoting their film in Kolkata yesterday.
Shraddha looked pretty in a powder grey skirt with patch work border along with a sequenced golden sleeveless blouse. Her hair was left open and falling on one shoulder. Aditya was seen sporting a blue polka dotted shirt with black faded jeans and black kicks, he looked handsome as ever in his one day old stubble.
The film follows the story of a famous singer-musician ‘Rahul Jaikar’(played by Aditya Roy Kapoor) who, one day, discovers an artist ‘Arohi Shirke’ (played by Shraddha Kapoor) and puts in everything he has to make her a good musician and in the process falls in love with her. The story then follows the downfall of Rahul’s career as the seeds of his doom are engraved in Arohi’s success.
Talking about the film Aditya says: “My character, Rahul Jaikar, is a successful and famous musician, but he’s not happy in life, actually on the surface he has everything, he has money, he has fame, but something is missing, which is ‘Arohi’.”
Shraddha says that ‘Aashiqui 2’ is an original script: “Instead of watching it as a remake, and comparing ‘Aashiqui 2’ to the previous one. Please watch the film for the two of us and our efforts. ‘Aashiqui 2’ is an original script so please watch it as that and we hope that you like the way Aditya and I have portrayed our characters.”
The film is directed by Mohit Suri and is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Mahesh Bhatt and Krishan Kumar. ‘Aashiqui 2’ is slated to release next weekend, on 26 April 2013.
