Actor Sidharth Malhotra says his upcoming film Ittefaq is an adaptation, and not a remake of the 1969 Rajesh Khanna-Nanda starrer hit.
"Ittefaq is a murder mystery just like the old one. I would say we are not remaking it. We are adapting it to look more engaging in today's time. Ittefaq is a true homage to the murder mystery genre," says Sid, not wanting to divulge more details about the plot.
"Let's keep the mystery as it is a murder mystery. I hope people will like our effort," says the actor, who made his debut with Karan Johar's Student of the Year in 2012.
While 1969 released Ittefaq was directed by the late Yash Chopra and produced by the late BR Chopra, the adaptation is helmed by BR Chopra's grandson Abhay Chopra and jointly produced by Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment, KJo's Dharma Productions and BR Films. The film also features Sonakshi Sinha and Akshaye Khanna in pivotal roles.(Inputs from IANS)
