Except a theme song or a promotional track which won’t be included in the film...

Red Chillies Entertainment along with BR Films and Dharma Productions have already announced their joint venture — the modern-day adaptation of the classic thriller Ittefaq which will now have Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha playing the leads. While we had earlier told you that the makers were trying to make a film with a runtime shorter than two hours, we heard something new about the film.

Ittefaq will be a songless film. Sidharth confirms this, but adds, “We will either have a promotional track or a theme track. We are working on it.”

The actor revealed that the film goes on floors this February and also told us that it’s “not a remake, but an adaptation” of the old Rajesh Khanna blockbuster. “There will obviously be changes. We can’t keep the ending the same because then there would be no mystery otherwise. Abhay Chopra is reworking the entire plot and no, it’s not a period film. It’s based in contemporary times.”

Prod him a little more and he adds, “I have never worked with Sonakshi previously except that we did a fashion show together once. We are not playing lovers and it’s not a run-of-the-mill typical boy-meets-girl story. It’s actually thrilling and mysterious about what happened on that one particular night. But yes, I interact with her character the most in the film.”
