Well, apart from both being thrillers, we may just have found one more thing that is common between both the two. As you all know, Shah Rukh Khan’s Fan was one of his few films that didn’t really have song except for Jabra fan of course. Seems like Ittefaq might follow suit. Yes, the thriller is reportedly going to be a songless film as they want to keep the runtime shorter than two hours. Sidharth confirmed this, but he also added, “We will either have a promotional track or a theme track. We are working on it.” For those who don’t know Red Chillies Entertainment along with BR Films and Dharma Productions had announced their joint venture — the modern-day adaptation of the classic thriller Ittefaq starring Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha playing the leads.
The actor revealed that the film would go on floors this February and also told us that it’s “not a remake, but an adaptation” of the old Rajesh Khanna blockbuster. “There will obviously be changes. We can’t keep the ending the same because then there would be no mystery otherwise. Abhay Chopra is reworking the entire plot and no, it’s not a period film. It’s based in contemporary times.” He further added “I have never worked with Sonakshi previously except that we did a fashion show together once. We are not playing lovers and it’s not a run-of-the-mill typical boy-meets-girl story. It’s actually thrilling and mysterious about what happened on that one particular night. But yes, I interact with her character the most in the film.”
In other news, Sidharth Malhotra recently wrapped up Reload with Jacqueline Fernandez. He had taken to social media to thank the team – It’s a wrap ! Thank you RELOAD team for making this experience fun n positive, big love @jacquelinef143 @roo_cha Raj n DK.”.
