Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha are all set to share screen space for the first time in the remake of the hit 1969 murder mystery Ittefaq. However, the two actors won't be romancing each other in the film.
Buzz is that the story won't be the same anymore. Sid, in a candid chat with a leading daily, was quoted saying, "It's not exactly the same. The premise will be different although the gist is the same. It is still about one night but we have modified the script. Otherwise, everyone knows what it's all about and there would be no fun. All the characters here are motivated differently."
The actor even spoke about the running time of the film and said, "It will be a very short, quick film. We want to make it in a very thrilling manner- in two hours or maybe less than that if we can. That's our plan."
The film is a remake of Yash Chopra directorial, the 1969 film Ittefaq, which starred Rajesh Khanna and Nanda, which in turn, was inspired by a British film, Signpost To Murder.
Meanwhile, Sid will be next seen in Reloaded, opposite Jacqueline Fernandez.
