Actor Rahul Roy, whose superhit debut film "Aashiqui" is being remade by the Bhatt camp, is not keen for any special appearance in the movie and believes no-image of lead actors will benefit the remake.
"I think only a new actor should portray the role because the USP of 'Aashiqui' was a new boy who had no image. If you look at it, people didn't know what to expect," the 44-year-old said here Wednesday at a fashion show organised in memory of late director Sultan Ahmed.
Asked if he would like to do a special appearance in the film, Rahul said: "No, I do not want to do it. There is a lot of difference between Rahul Roy of that time and Rahul now. The innocence I had 22 years back, that innocence can never come back."
"Someone corrected me that Aditya and Shraddha are doing the roles. I think both of them don't have any particular image and I think both should be absolutely right for the role," he added.
Rahul asserts the storyline of the remake has to be very different from the 1990-flick as the definition of romance has changed.
"Mohit is a good director. I can't say what heights will this new film touch but this is evident that the story would be different because there is a lot of difference between romance then and romance now," Rahul said.
