Sidharth Malhotra is riding high on the success of his recent hit, ‘Kapoor And Sons’ and he has already started shooting for his next film, to be directed by Raj and Krishna DK. Besides this, Sidharth has also signed the remake to Rajesh Khanna starrer 1969 classic, ‘Ittefaq’ where he will be seen opposite the ‘Dabangg’ girl Sonakshi Sinha.
Sidharth seems very exciting for this movie which he depicts as an outstanding murder mystery. Talking about the project, he said, “I recently found a very interesting murder mystery with a credible cast and big production house. It’s the old Yash Chopra film, Ittefaq . It’s a great film but also a small one. The writing is outstanding and I don’t remember having watched a murder mystery like this in the last five years, where you think ‘murderer kaun hai ?’”
Ittefaq remake will be jointly produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment. Late doyen B.R. Chopra’s grandson Abhay Chopra will direct the remake. The shooting for the movie will begin once Sidharth completes his current commitment.
