Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Despite its title, the film is not a sequel to Aashiqui, and the only similarity is that "both are music-based romantic films".[2]
  2. ^ While the 2014 Godzilla film by Legendary was released before Shin Godzilla, Shin Godzilla is the first Godzilla film to be produced in Japan since Final Wars.
