When Aashiqui was re­leased in 1990, no one thought that the movie, star­ring new­bies Rahul Roy and Anu Ag­gar­wal, would ac­quire cult sta­tus for its mu­sic and the chem­istry be­tween the lead pair. To­day, as the film com­pletes 25 years, its mu­sic is still well loved. Bhushan Ku­mar, son of Gul­shan Ku­mar, who had pro­duced the film, says, “My fa­ther once gave me a cas­sette of love songs which he had recorded and hadn’t shared with any­one else. Ev­ery song was soul­ful. I still look up to these num­bers when I choose love songs.” In 2013, di­rec­tor Mo­hit Suri, who was eight years old when Aashiqui re­leased, recre­ated the film’s magic by mak­ing an in­di­rect se­quel. “I needed to break the im­age of a di­rec­tor who makes only erotic thrillers, so I de­cided to make Aashiqui 2, as the orig­i­nal was the most ro­man­tic film from the Bhatt camp,”cam he says.
