A STAR IS BORN IS REMAKE OF AASHIQUI 2 ?
But, before jumping into any conclusion, let’s tell you that both the movies are a remake of the Hollywood classic `A Star is Born’ of 1937. The movie has already been remade thrice in Hollywood alone. The story line of all the movies stay the same. A love story of two singers whose lives takes a roller coaster ride. Alcoholism and Self destruction play a very important role in the movie.
Aashiqui 2 was a franchise of an already super hit movie. But the recent Hollywood movie is making rounds in all possible major awards including Academy award. The Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga starrer has been a successful movie. But the Bollywood fans see it as low compared to Aashiqui 2. Aashiqui 2 starred by Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor was a musical blockbuster. The movie literally gave birth to these stars.
You never know, the movie might be remade again after 10 years down the line. But one will definitely agree that the Bollywood counterpart of the Hollywood classic was better made. The music, tight screenplay and depth were very well portrayed. It still holds place in the hearts of many movie lovers. If `A Star is Born’ ends up winning an Oscar, Bollywood movie buffs will surely feel that hole in their hearts for they believe it is the best remake version of the original.
