Shraddha’s film career has not been well so far and now after stepping into Bhatt’s camp, it is being expected that she will witness a jump into career move. She was launched in Amitabh Bachchan starrer Teen Patti and she was roped in to play the lead in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s production ‘My Friend Pinto’ but unfortunately for her, the role was finally given to Kalki Koechlin. Then Shraddha did Yash Raj Films’s Luv Ka The End, which did not do well at the box office. Now as Bhatts are behind her back, she will get the boost in career. Bhatts are famous in giving good launching pad to newcomers thus Shraddha Kapoor will find a good launch from them with Aashquie 2.
Mukesh Bhatt makes it confirmed that they have roped in Shraddha Kapoor in the cast of Aashquie 2 and he is sure of her acting skills and even admire her a lot. He goes on saying that the sequel to Aashquie would provide the three stars – Shaad, Aditya and Shraddha a mammoth platform and fame which were given to Rahul Roy, Anu Agarwal and Deepak Tijori 22 years back from Aashquie.
