The day when ‘Aashiqui’, a musical franchise by the Bhatts had kickstarted

Music is a very important element in any Bollywood film. While some songs of a particular film stay with us forever, there are songs that we even don’t remember after watching the film. Well, talking about songs there’s one film whose tracks are still loved by the audiences, even now, 27 years since the movie released.

So, on August 17, 1990, we witnessed a beautiful romantic-musical on the big screen which has been converted into a franchise. We are talking about Mahesh Bhatt’s ‘Aashiqui’ starring Rahul Roy and Anu Aggarwal. The movie was a big hit, and the songs from the film like ‘Ek Sanam Chahiye Aashiqui Ke Liye’, ‘Nazar Ke Samne’ and ‘Dheere Dhheere Se Meri Zindagi Mein Aana’ are still in people’s playlist thanks to the fantastic music composed by ‘Nadeem-Shravan’.

Well, after the release of the movie, Rahul Roy and Anu Aggarwal were said to be the next big thing in Bollywood. However, none of their movies could recreate the magic of ‘Aashiqui’. (Also Read: The day when ‘Afreen’ era of music ended, with the demise of Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan)

After 23 years of ‘Aashiqui’, the makers came up with the sequel of the movie titled ‘Aashiqui 2’. The movie, which was directed by Mohit Suri, starred Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur in the lead role. The songs of this movie were equally hit, and this one too turned out to be a superhit at the box office.

Well, there are already talks about the third instalment of the movie. The movie will star Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles, and it is currently in the scripting stage. We simply can’t wait for one more beautiful-musical under the franchise.
