Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

AlthoughAlt ac­tor Anu Ag­gar­wal (left) left the in­dus­try af­ter her car ac­ci­dent in 1999, she very clearly re­mem­bers how star­dom hit her overnight af­ter the re­leaserele of Aashiqui. “Peo­ple wen­twen crazy. There were peo­ple out my doorstep all the time; I walked out to notes say­ing, “Anu, I love you.” There were al­waysalw pieces of pa­per in the cor­ri­dors,” Anu said in an ear­lier in­ter­view. She also said that do­ing the movie was never on her mind. “I never wanted to be a star. Ma­hesh Bhatt pres­sured me into do­ing Aashiqui. He looked at me and said, ‘You are a star. You should act in movies.’ Seven months later, he called me and said, ‘I’ve writ­ten a script for you. If you don’t do the film, I won’t make it. The name of the film is Aashiqui’,” she says.
