The first look of actors Sidharth Malhotra, Akshaye Khanna and Sonakshi Sinha’s upcoming film, Ittefaq, is out now. The project is being bankrolled by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment along with Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. Ittefaq is an official remake of the 1969 Rajesh Khanna blockbuster ‘Ittefaq’. The movie was a murder mystery which was directed by Yash Chopra.
The movie starred Rajesh Khanna, Nanda and Sujit Kumar in lead roles and is considered to be one of the solid whodunit films of that era. The remake will be a modern touch to the original movie. Also, Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha will be sharing the screen for the first time. The shooting of the movie has been wrapped up and the makers of the film are working on its marketing strategies.
First look posters of the lead characters were released today by the makers and well this remake certainly does look interesting. Sidharth Malhotra (Vikram) is seen with handcuffs on the poster. Sonakshi Sinha (Maya) is seen holding a torch and finding something inquisitively. While we have seen Sonakshi do a good job when it comes to action, this will be another genre that certainly she may turn out to be impressive at.
This time it’s of Akshaye Khanna , who is seen in a daunting look. He plays Rajan Kumar, who plays a pivotal character in the film. Abhay Chopra has to work some sort of magic with this film because the original movie directed by Yash Chopra was a great film that did exceptionally well at the box office.
So, if the director wants to get his audience hooked to film, he has to find a twist that is big enough to glue the movie goers to the seat. The film is slated to release on 3rd November this year.
