The cast on celebrating Aashiqui's success on The Kapil Sharma Show

Going on a nostalgic ride, he will say that he gets overwhelmed by the love the film still gets from the audience.
Mahesh Bhatt was adamant on casting Rahul Roy
Rahul Roy will share that he never thought that he would work in Hindi cinema and used to accompany Mahesh Bhatt to various film sets so that he could catch the nuances of film making and acting by observing actors. He used to silently observe ace actors like Anupam Kher, Meenakshi Sheshadri among more. Thanking the filmmaker, Roy will say that despite the industry talking against him, Bhatt went with his instinct of casting him as the lead. He will also share that the film was loved so much by the audience, that they would buy the ticket in black for Rs 1500, which was quite a big amount even then.

Roy will talk about the time when they were shooting in a jungle for the song "Jaan-e-jigar Jaaneman." He will say that he had to come running for the shot, and since he did not have an idea, he went too far. Mahesh Bhatt had to cut the shot and even screamed at him. Agarwal, on her part will say that she took six months to sign the film, as she wasn't confident. She also shared that Bhatt sir nicknamed her as 'one-take artist' as she shot all her scenes at one go.
Why Anu Agarwal was asked to vacate her flat after the success of Aashiqui
Going down the memory lane, Anu Agarwal will share that her life completely changed after Aashiqui.

She will also confess that she had to pay a big price of her popularity as her landlord asked her to vacate the house, citing that journalists were even bothering them for interviews.

SRK's part in Darr was originally offered to Rahul Roy
Rahul Roy will share that after Aashiqui released, he did not get even a single offer for six months. And suddenly he had almost 50 film offers at one time. He will share that Yash Chopra called him for a film narration for a character that was written with him in mind. The film was Darr and since he had no dates, Roy had to decline the offer, which eventually went to Shah Rukh Khan. Accepting it as his fate, he will say that he has no complaints.
