Won’t make ‘Aashiqui 3’ for the sake of it, says Mohit Suri


Mumbai: His movie “Aashiqui 2” enjoys a massive fan following even today, but filmmaker Mohit Suri  says he will not come up with a third part without the right script.

“Aashiqui 2”, directed by Suri, had Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles. There were reports that Bhatts were gearing up for a third part with Sidharth Malhotra and Alia.

Mohit, who is currently busy promoting “Half Girlfriend”  told PTI, “It’s a loved franchise but it should come back for the right reason, which is the script. I would’ve made ‘Aashiqui 2’ even if it would’ve been called ‘RJ ki ek love story’. I wanted to make the film badly and tell the story.

“You shouldn’t make a film because you want to capitalise on a title. You can get the film to the audience  but you can’t make them like it. I can lose everything I built with ‘Aashiqui 2’ by making a bad ‘Aashiqui 3’,” he adds.

“Half Girlfiend” is scheduled to release on May 19.
