Mohit Suri credits Udita for 'Aashiqui 2' successMohit Suri says that the "ideal love" that he has presented in "Aashiqui 2", is inspired by the unconditional love that his wife Udita Goswami showers on him. Therefore he gives her "full credit" for the success of the romantic-musical saga.
Released on Friday, "Aashiqui 2" earned over Rs.20 crore at the box office in the first three days of its release. Suri also can't stop thanking his stars for his happiness.
"And by stars I don't mean Aditya and Shraddha," he joked. "I mean the stars above," he said.
"People say the kind of sublime ideal love I've shown in 'Aashiqui 2' doesn't exist. I say, 'Come home. I've the perfect love at home. Udita cares for me unconditionally'. So I am allowing her to take full credit for the success of 'Aashiqui 2'," added the director.
Suri recalls 2012 as the darkest phase of his life.
"People said I couldn't make a film with new actors and expect an audience to come in. But I was pretty sure I wanted Aditya and Shraddha to play my protagonists. My writer Shagufta Rafique and I saw them as the protagonists. See, Aditya and Shraddha may had unsuccessful films before, but that never took away from their talent. Sure. sometimes films don't work out. Even I've had failures."
Interestingly, Suri had offered Shraddha another film. "And she had rejected it long back! I remember when I met her for the first time, she came out with oil in her hair and wearing specs. She was talking to her mother in Marathi. But when I met her the next time, she had changed into a typical heroine with groomed hair and full makeup. I told her I had come to her for the way she looked earlier. Poor thing, she was confused."
As for Aditya, it was a failed talent hunt that landed him the role....being a human...
