Back in 1969, the Yash Chopra directed Ittefaq featuring Rajesh Khanna and Nanda hit screens. Now decades later, we hear that the grandson of the film’s producer BR Chopra is contemplating on remaking the film. If what we hear is true, then the remake which will be produced by Abhay Chopra (BR Chopra’s grandson) will feature Sonakshi Sinha and Sidharth Malhotra in the lead.
Though no official confirmation on the film is available, sources close to the project state, “Yes it is true Sonakshi and Sidharth will feature as the lead in the Ittefaq remake.” Further adding about the film, the source adds, “Currently the film is in the prep stage and narration will commence shortly and is expected to go on floors later this year.” However, since the film will be a remake to retain a certain amount of mystery, we hear that the makers have decided on changing the climax from the original 1969 murder mystery.
As for the lead pair, while Sonakshi Sinha, who recently opted out of Apoorva Lakhia’s Haseena will next be seen in Akira directed by AR Murugadoss, Abhinay Deo’s Force 2, Namstey London and Noor. Sidharth whose recent release Kapoor & Sons struck a chord with the audience will be seen in Nitya Mehra’s Baar Baar Dekho.
