Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, and songs of love will be played all through the day on every FM Radio channel. And there is a very high probability that you will hear at least one song from a 1990 blockbuster that redefined the meaning of romance.
Because ‘Aashiqui’ remains one of India’s favourite romantic films of all time.
‘Aashiqui’ continues to give the feels to everyone from that era while enrapturing those who see it today. If the songs make your heart stir, the face of the film’s lead actor Rahul Roy immediately holds your mind.
This man has given the feels to those who know the meaning of love.
If Rahul Roy was irresistible then, he is unforgettable now. He was the poster boy of love in the 90s.
Bet you, if there was a social media at the time, Roy (and Anu Aggarwal) would have broken the Internet, at least in India.
And there are quite a few reasons why Roy still remains something like a God to lovers:
1. He was the best looking man (with the best hairstyle) in Bollywood at the time.
Seriously, his locks were the best!
2. He serenaded Anu with songs that are considered cult today.
Which girl will not fall for a guy who sings “Main Duniya Bhula Dunga Teri Chahat Mein”?
3. This iconic pose from that film.
So full of love that they recreated it in the 2013 blockbuster ‘Aashiqui 2’.
4. He was very natural in the film – no pretensions.
5. And he brought out the emotions of a young man in love like no one has ever done since.
Each time you watch Rahul Roy and his love for Anu Aggarwal in the film, you feel the strings of love playing in your heart over and over again.
So there is no greater joy than the news of Rahul Roy making a return to the screen in Pooja Bhatt’s ‘Cabaret’, where he will again be holding that jacket over his head, but this time to cover Richa Chadda.
Everyone loves Rahul Roy because…
