Director Mohit Suri, who has directed Aashiqui 2, says he was never bogged down by the pressure of remaking a cult film, as he simply wanted to make a good film.

"What we tried to do is to be honest to today, and not be succumbed by the pressure of a classical or cult film. What we wanted to make is a good film today, making a film that people will like today and not be bogged down by the pressure," the 31-year-old said in an interview.

Aashiqui 2 is said to be inspired by the musical saga and romantic story that the 1990 film "Aashiqui" was.

Asked if Suri treated the film in any special way while directing it, he said: "Never looked at things as treatment or direction. You make films not with your head, but with your heart. Especially a film like Aashiqui. It's not like I followed a way to shoot it, I just took the camera and shot it."

Aashiqui 2, releasing April 26, stars Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor.
