Bollywood has always been fascinated with remakes and many remakes in Bollywood have made their way to the silver screen in a grand way. The remake of the movie Ittefaq is under buzz since almost a year. The movie Ittefaq’s remake was earlier rumored to be made with Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra as a lead pair but recently in a public interview Sidharth Malhotra spilled beans on the details of the movie. The star not only revealed about the star cast of the movie but also gave an insight about what the movie will be like.
As per Sidharth’s recent statements Ittefaq when remade will have him and Sonakshi Sinha as the lead pair but the story of the movie will be slightly twisted to give the movie a new turn. Further, the movie will not have Alia Bhatt but Sonakshi Sinha instead. The movie will revolve around the details of the murder mystery and will be an attempt to revive an old and long lost tradition of Bollywood.
Let’s have a look what Sidharth Malhotra actually said
“Ittefaq was the first song-less film in Bollywood directed by Yash Chopra. Our film is very different as we are just adapting the basic premise. Since audiences are aware about the suspense of Ittefaq, we are changing the twist of the film. We are trying to revive a genre which is dead the industry. This is a big film about murder mystery releasing after many years. I am really looking forward to start shooting for Ittefaq with Sonakshi Sinha from January 2017.”
The movie was originally directed by Yash Chopra and the remake will be directed by B R Chopra’s grandson Uday Chopra who will carry forward his legacy. The movie’s shoot will begin in January 2017.
