Many times, Bollywood films take inspiration from Hollywood films and end up doing great business at the box office. However, in a rare scenario, some Hollywood films also take some inspiration from Bollywood movies. Speaking of this, many people believed that Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s film A Star is Born took some inspiration from Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor’s film Aashiqui 2. For the folks who have seen the film, some scenes between Bradley and Lady Gaga have a similar look as the ones between Shraddha and Aditya.

In a recent interview, Aditya was asked about it felt to him when people approached him and told that A Star is Born seemed to be inspired by his film Aashiqui 2. Aditya stated that he found that observation very funny. Aditya also mentioned that he loved the film and was a huge fan of Bradley Cooper. The Kalank star also appreciated Bradley’s acting in the film and also the fact that he sang and directed Lady Gaga also. 

In an interview with Bombay Times, Aditya said, “A lot of people messaged me saying how the Hollywood film was inspired by Aashiqui 2 (smiles) and how a lot of scenes were similar. I found it really funny. I loved that film, though. It was amazing how Bradley Cooper acted, sang in it and directed a new actor (Gaga). It’s a huge achievement.”

A Star is Born is a remake of an old Hollywood film from the 30s.

Aditiya and his friends need to do their homework.

Well said Aditya. your comments on Bradley are spot on and yes it was a huge directorial venture for bradley and he came out trumps.
lovely when actors acknowledge each other’s achievements

Lol

I thought he was boring but he is a blonde too..

whatever... his career as a leading actor is over .

That's not true. In fact Aashiqui 2 was "inspired by " A Star is Born (1954). By the way, They did not even take the permission to remake the film in Bollywood. Please get your facts straight. For the record, Bradley Cooper's A Star is born is way better than Aashiqui 2.

Original Aashiqi was “inspired” from A star is born from 1957. Aashiqi 2 was a remake of original and a bit of A star is born.

dfd

lol..being an actor himself did he not know that A star in born has been already been made thrice before...Just shows how serious they are of this craft..these privilage lot..Bhatt camp is famous for stealing ideas from hollywood..Aasiqui was inspired from 70s Star in born..

LOL! Indians are deluded. Welcome to the era of ignorance.

A star is born is a remake of the original Hollywood film in 1937. There are two more remakes in 1954 and 1976 so Aashiqui 2 didn’t inspire it!
