Sometime back we had told you that Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha will be seen sharing screen space for the first time in the remake of B.R Chopra's iconic thriller 'Ittefaq' to be helmed by his grandson Abhay Chopra. The film is being produced by Shah Rukh Khan, Karan Johar and Abhay's brother Kapil.
The young lad was quoted saying, "I am really excited to work on this project. The script is brilliant and it will be a new screen character for me." The original flick starred Rajesh Khanna, Nanda and Sujit Kumar. 'Ittefaq' was a remake of the British film, 'Signpost to Murder' (1964), starring Joanne Woodward.
Now here's some exciting scoop that we have for you. If the latest buzz is to be believed then the makers have roped in Akshaye Khanna for an interesting role in the film. Wow, we just can't wait for the 'Dil Chahta Hai' actor to do more films.
Meanwhile Akshaye will be seen as a baddie in Varun Dhawan- John Abraham starrer 'Dishoom' and 'Mom'.
