And filmmakers Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt didn't keep their fans waiting too long.
The Bhatts, along with the film's stars Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor, unveiled the music of Aashiqui 2 at Sudeep Studios. (Incidentally, the music of the original Aashiqui was recorded here.)
The music was launched by Gulshan Kumar's two-year-old grandson Ruhaan - an act that got everyone reminiscing about the late Gulshan Kumar, who was an integral part of the original movie.
"It's an emotional moment for me and everyone here," said Mahesh Bhatt. "I still remember the day when Gulshanji came and met me. He said, let's make a musical film [Aashiqui, 1990] and from there the journey started."
"I can feel Gulshan's presence here. I know his blessings are with us," Mukesh Bhatt added.
The songs for Aashiqui 2 have been composed by Mithoon, Jeet Ganguly and Ankit Tiwari.
Directed by Mohit Suri, Aashiqui 2 is not a sequel to Aashiqui, and the makers say that the only similarity is that it's also a romantic musical saga.
