'Yeh Jo Mohabbat hai' a modern love story: Ashim Samanta

Mumbai, June 20 (IANS) Producer Ashim Samanta is set to continue the legacy of Aradhana Films with his upcoming romantic flick "Yeh Jo Mohabbat hai".

This will be his son, Aditya Samanta's debut film and he will be seen with Sanjay Dutt's niece, Nazia Hussain. The film is directed by Shree Narayan Singh.

Both Aditya and Nazia make a nice on screen couple. "I am very excited. I hope that they succeed. The chemistry on screen is excellent. They both look fantastic and like they are made for each other," Ashim said on the music launch of the film Wednesday.

"She (Nazia) is exactly what we wanted. I auditioned so many girls. I wanted somebody young and innocent and not very modern. I wanted a mix of tradition and modernity and that was tough," he added.

The music of the film is fresh and has been composed by Anu Malik, who was also present at the event along with the complete cast of the film. The film's cast also includes veteran actors like Mohnish Behl, Rati Agnihotri and Farida Jalal.

Shakti Samanta's banner Aradhana Films is known for its epic romantic dramas like Amar Prem, Kati Patang and Aradhana. "Yeh Jo Mohabbat Hai" is also a romantic film but is modern in its outlook.

"Emotions like love don't change with time. We might be portraying age old emotions in the film, but the film is very modern in its outlook," Ashim said.
