Aditya Roy Kapur finally REACTS to comparisons of ‘Aashiqui 2’ with ‘A Star is Born’
Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga starrer ‘A Star is Born’ has earned a lot of accolades. The first ‘A Star is Born’ movie came in the year 1937 and after that, there came many adaptations of the movie in Hollywood including the recent one.
In 2013, ‘Aashiqui 2‘ was released starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor. After watching the Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga starrer, many people found similarities with ‘Aashiqui 2’ and some even thought that Hollywood took inspiration from Bollywood.
In a recent interview with Bombay Times, when Aditya was asked about it, he said, “A lot of people messaged me saying how the Hollywood film was inspired by ‘Aashiqui 2’ (smiles) and how a lot of scenes were similar. I found it really funny. I loved that film, though. It was amazing how Bradley Cooper acted, sang in it and directed a new actor (Gaga). It’s a huge achievement.”
Aditya is currently gearing up for ‘Kalank’ that is releasing tomorrow. He is playing the character of Dev Chaudhry in the epic drama. Produced by Dharma Productions, the movie is directed by Abhishek Varman. It has an ensemble cast including Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani and Kunal Kemmu.
