She says Suri, director of films like "Kalyug", "Raaz - The Mystery Continues" and "Murder 2", "was a task master on the sets" but kept the atmosphere light.
"Since it's an intense emotional love story, so he asked us not to feel any pressure. He only wanted us to be into the skin of the characters. And all throughout, we were so engrossed in our roles that we felt no pressure," said the actress in an interview.
Daughter of Shibangi and actor Shakti Kapoor, the actress will be seen romancing Aditya Roy Kapoor in the movie, which is coming out April 26.
Shraddha, who made her debut in the industry in 2010 with "Teen Patti", said she enjoyed listening to "Aashiqui" songs. The Mahesh Bhatt-directed film churned out chartbusters like "Ek sanam chahiye", "Nazar ke samne jigar ke paa" and "Dheere dheere se".
"I remember the songs back then also and I used to enjoy those songs, I used to dance on 'Aashiqui' songs in my room. That is one of my fond memories of the film," said the 24-year-old.
