Aashiqui is one of the popular Bollywood movies. However, not many know that Anu Agarwal wasn’t the first choice for the film but Pooja Bhatt was chosen for the role. But the actress chose not to do the film because she was in love.

As per reports in Koi Moi, back in 2015, Pooja attended Jagran Film Festival where she revealed declining Aashiqui when her uncle Mukesh Bhatt offered her the film. She told, “I had a boyfriend and I was in love with him since I was 12. When I was 16, I started dating him. At 17, I did Daddy, and at 18 I was offered Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin. So he very patiently went through the phase of my first film and said, ‘If you want to marry me, drop movie offers because I’ll never marry an actor’.”

“Being a romantic person, I said I’ll do anything for love. Then Mukeshji (Mukesh Bhatt) came to my house with the signing amount for the role, but I refused the offer. He called my father and asked him to make me understand. But I never agreed to do it.”

“Then my relationship ended with that person, though he still is a very dear friend of mine. But then life took over. So now I think I should have done the film”, Pooja ended.
