Poster Out: Sidharth, Sonakshi, Akshaye in ‘Ittefaq’ remake

‘It Happened one night’ is the tagline of the poster of ‘Ittefaq’ starring Sidharth Malhotra, Sonakshi Sinha and Akshaye Khanna. The poster as well as the tagline arise inquisitiveness.

‘Ittefaq’ is the remake of 1969 hit film of the same name which starred Rajesh Khanna and Nanda in the lead roles.  The film bagged many awards.

Last night, superstar and co-producer of the film, Shahrukh Khan released the teaser poster of the project and captioned it as, “What exactly happened that night? #ItHappenedOneNight @S1dharthM @sonakshisinha @karanjohar @junochopra @abhayrchopra(sic).”

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted about the posters of ‘Ittefaq’, he wrote# Sidharth Malhotra... Sonakshi Sinha... Akshaye Khanna... #Ittefaq releases 3 Nov 2017.

Red Chillies, Dharma Productions and BR Films are jointly producing the remake of the 1969 Yash Chopra-directed murder mystery.

Talking to the media on the occasion of 4th National Yash Chopra Memorial Award which was given to him, Sharukh Khan said that he himself wanted to star in the film but because of date issue, he couldn't, “I wanted to do the film. I really wanted to do it when I heard the script. But I was doing other films. So, I couldn’t. But the team, which is doing right now, is great."

“I am glad I am remaking Ittefaq. I also like Yashji’s Waqt. It is beautiful. From my own films with him, I think it would be Jab Tak Hai Jaan because that was his last movie,” he had added.

‘Ittefaq’ is helmed by BR Chopra’s grandson Abhay. The film went on floors in mid-February.

Sidharth Malhotra was quoted as saying that ‘Ittefaq’ is not a remake. The ‘Brothers’ actor said, "Ittefaq it is not a remake; instead, it is an adaptation. It is murder mystery that we are bringing back. We haven't seen many murder mysteries of late, so it's exciting to just bring back that genre."
