Gautam Gulati and Aditya Roy Kapoor

Just imagine Shraddha Kapoor romancing Bigg Boss 8 contestant Gautam Gulati on the tunes of Tum Hi Ho in rains. Well, not a very good thought for many as actor Aditya Roy Kapur did a fantastic work in 2013 musical-romantic hit Aashiqui 2. But very few would know that now popular face of small screen, Gautam Gulati has once auditioned for the role of lead in Aashiqui 2 of that of failing musician Rahul Jaykar, eventually played by Aditya Roy Kapur!

Gautam Gulati, who has slowly evolved as the leading romantic hero of the Bigg Boss 8 house had earlier auditioned for the lead role in Aashiqui 2, one of the most romantic movies of 2013. In this video, a then 24-year-old Gautam Gulati gave an emotional performance, though a little over the top! We have become used to his crying, yelling and emoting for no reason, thanks to his Bigg Boss 8 stint.

Since entering the reality show Bigg Boss 8, Gautam Gulati had immediately gained attention from the viewers – be it for his volatile, angry young man personality or his continuous romantic hook-ups with house-mates Diandra Soares and Sonali Raut. The popularity graph of Gautam has risen mercurially ever since he became a part of the mad house. Very few noticed the supporting role played by Gautam Gulati in leading daily soap Diya Aur Baati Hum. But looks like all this is a thing of past for an aggressive, yelling romantic hero of Bigg Boss 8 house. Aashiqui 2 or No Aashiqui 2, looks like Gautam Gulati may end up bagging few roles once out of the house.

Well, for now enjoy Gautam Gulati’s audition from Aashiqui 2 and decide if he would have done a better work than Aditya Roy Kapur. Decide for yourself!
