Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha have commenced work on their upcoming thriller 'Ittefaq'- a remake of the 1969 film by the same name starring Rajesh Khanna and Nanda. The crime thriller that is being produced by Karan Johar and directed by B.R. Chopra's grandson Abhay Chopra, will however not be a direct rip-off, of the original that was considered as one of the path-breaking films for the lead actors then.
According to reports, Karan and Abhay will be exercising creative liberty and will allegedly twist the film's ending in order to retain the suspense. At the end of the 1969 murder mystery, Nanda was found to be her husband's murderer. If reports are to be believed, then Sonakshi, who will be essaying Nanda's role, will not be shown as the culprit. Instead, the makers intend to give a new twist to the tale.
Apart from that, the makers will also reportedly introduce songs in the film, something that was not a part of the original. This will also be the first time that we see Sidharth sharing screen space with Sonakshi.
