The makers of Sachin Pilgaokar’s directorial Ashi Hi Aashiqui generated quite a bit of excitement to reveal the leading lady of the film opposite Abhinay Berde, son of late actor Laxmikant. They finally disclosed Hemal Ingle as the one in the teaser of the film recently. 

Ashi Hi Aashiqui is Ingle's Marathi film debut. She has acted in Sree Harsha Konuganti’s Telugu movie Hushaaru (2018), which released this month on 13 December. 

The teaser of Ashi Hi Aashiqui makes it clear that the film is for the modern youngsters of today’s era, where love has taken a different and, most importantly, a bold form. A guy and a girl asking each other if the other is a virgin is hardly seen in Marathi cinema. 

The teaser doesn’t reveal much of the story. It just shows that the two characters [played by Berde and Ingle] meet and romance in the picturesque locales of Switzerland. This is the first Marathi movie to be shot in the country. The only issue here is the music which doesn’t go completely with the visuals. 

Along with writing and direction, Pilgaonkar has also composed music for this film. In an exclusive chat with us last year, singer Sonu Nigam had revealed that he has sung all songs for the film. This is the first Marathi film produced by T-Series. 

Ashi Hi Aashiqui will be releasing on Valentine’s Day, 14 February 2019.
