Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions upcoming project Ittefaq will have three solid actors from Bollywood who have never been paired together ever before. Sidharth Malhotra, Sonakshi Sinha and Akshaye Khanna will be donning their respective roles in Abhay Chopra’s next directorial adventure which appears to be a crime thriller.
Sonakshi Sinha and Sidharth Malhotra shared their first looks from the film and their fans are loving it. The actor duo shared movie posters of their characters revealing a bit about the plot. Dharma Production announced the movie with a poster of Sidharth, calling him “Accused and innocent” and the two actors replied with a post each on their official Twitter handles.

Sidharth Malhotra was the first one from the Ittefaq star cast to tease the fans with a poster of him from the movie. I am accused of a crime I did not commit! Wait for my story… #IttefaqNov3 @sonakshisinha #AkshayeKhanna, he captioned the tweet.

Akshaye Khanna’s poster was put forth by Karan Johar, adding more to the suspense. “He trusts no one and suspects everyone! He only wants the TRUTH! #Ittefaq #3rdNOV @S1dharthM @sonakshisinha #akshaye,” Karan wrote on twitter.

Going by the posters, Ittefaq’s plot revolves around 2 murders, 2 suspects and 2 versions of the story. Both Sonakshi and Sidharth have claimed they are both accused of crimes they didn’t commit which adds up to the dual version of the story.
Continuing the trend of remakes in Bollywood, Ittefaq is another on the table which is inspired from Yash Chopra’s Ittefaq from 1969 which featured Rajesh Khanna, Nanda and Bindu.
The fact that most of the youth wouldn’t have relished the original 1969 thriller can now enjoy the modern version of the epic. Sonakshi Sinha in an interview to a news agency said, “I have not seen the old Ittefaq. So for me, I am doing a new film. And I am sure a lot of people from our generation have not seen the original ‘Ittefaq’ either. The way the film is rewritten and adapted to fit in today’s scenario and time makes it a fresh film. I am looking at it as a new film.”
