Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan are all set to start the shooting of their next joint venture Ittefaq, a remake of Yash Chopra's 1969 murder mystery. Red Chillies Entertainment will be co-producing the movie along with Dharma Productions and B.R. Films. It will be directed by the late B.R. Chopra's grandson, Abhay Chopra.
SRK flagged off the shooting of the Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha starrer that will recreate the magic of the original Ittefaq, which featured Rajesh Khanna, Nanda and Bindu.
In the remake, Sonakshi and Sidharth who will be sharing screen space for the first time, will not be seen in a romantic relationship but instead will have strong lead roles to themselves.
Sidharth enthusiastically instagrammed a picture of the crew that read, "Great day one of 'Ittefaq'. Thank you SRK sir. This one will be special,"
Sharing the excitement, Sonakshi tweeted: "Thank you SRK, Karan Johar and B.R. Films. Was an amazing first day on set today with you all! Great start to our 'Ittefaq' journey." We can't wait to see Sid and Sonakshi's fresh pairing on the big screen!
