Mohit Suri- the guy who gave us some amazing movies (filled with amazing songs) like Zeher, Aashiqui 2 and Ek Villain celebrates his 35th birthday today.
Here are a couple of interesting things about this man!
- Atif in Bollywood? All thanks to him!
Atif Aslam made his Bollywood singing debut in a Mohit Suri film that turned him to a huge musical sensation.
He started off with Woh Lamhein Woh Baatein from Zeher immediately followed by Aadat in Kalyug, another Mohit Suri film.
2. The ‘remix’ version of a song on the film album? Also his idea 🙂
Well, the credit for this goes to none other than the birthday boy himself, who brought the remix culture of Bollywood songs back to life. In fact, he teamed up with his friend DJ Suketu to create the Woh Lamhein Woh Baatein remixed version that became a huge hit. After that he went on to make remixed versions of “Aadat” ,”Toh Phir Aao” and “Tum Hi Ho”.
3. Producers love him because in his case Budgets <<<<< Profits.
Most of his hit films like Aashiqui 2 and Ek Villain was made on a small budget but these movies went on to break records and earned huge profits. For example, Aashiqui 2 was made on a budget of 12 crores but the film made more than 85.40 crores with 612 % profit margin!!
So here’s wishing Mohit Suri a very happy birthday and loads of success for his new film “Half Girlfriend”.
