Shahrukh Khan promotes Ittefaq

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha’s Ittefaq is going to release this Friday. The makers of the film held a press meet event today. Shahrukh Khan who is also the producer of Ittefaq, was also present there.

Talking about the upcoming movie, Shah Rukh said that he loved the original film. “When I was growing up, it was my mother’s favourite film. Rajesh Khanna and Nanda ji both were good. I found the story interesting. It is exciting for these two boys (Abhay and Kapil Chopra) to remake a classic.”

“I have done ‘Devdas,’ which would never be better than the classic (and) ‘Don’, which would never be better than Bachchan sahab’s (version). Somewhere down the line, (it is) just to reintroduce great cinema that perhaps passes the youngsters by. So ‘Ittefaq’ is another move in that line. Hopefully, youngsters will like it,” he added.

“What’s wrongly essayed is that it’s not a remake – the premise might be similar to the 1969 Ittefaq but the movie has taken a flight of its own.”

Ittefaq is jointly produced by Karan’s Dharma Productions and Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment. Helmed by first time director, Abhay Chopra, ‘Ittefaq’ stars Sidharth Malhotra, Sonakshi Sinha, and Akshaye Khanna in lead roles. It is an adaptation of the 1969 film by the same name, which was directed by Yash Chopra.

  1. Ittefaq stars Akshaye Khanna, Sidharth Malhothra and Sonakshi Sinha…@arena. Fact Akshaye Khanna was missing for sometimes his name shall definitely be the 1st when the crediting begins.

    • Lo batao
      Srk ki khud ki movies flop ho rahi hai aur ek aur flop movies ko produce karne chala aaya
      I want to salute srk for his courage that after giving a very big disaster (jhms) then also he dare to go in public
      And coming to movie original movie was epic and nanda was main culprit of this movie and in this sonakshi will be culprit and Siddhartha will be innocent who will be trapped in charge of murder

      • Salute karlia srk to to ab wapas paagal khanay chal

        Crack movie release hone wali hai paagal khanay mein. Crack ki baat paagal hi samjhenge

      • Aise Insaan Ko beech chaurahe me bora me band kar ke Maar maar ke haddi pasli ek kar Dena chahiye ..Apne to movie dkehna nahi hai or baki Ko spoiler bata rha movie ka ..or vaise v exact same nahi hai pehle vale movie se ..Sonakshi culprit nahi hai bharwa roric..tera Dallas Canadian Akshay bhi promote Kia ab bhok

  2. Between…thats why i always respect SRK forever. Good to publicly say that his movies were not as classic as their predecessors despite many of us knowing but it gives an additional respect when it comes out from an Actors mouth esp of SRK status.

  3. SRK related news after a long time. Don’t care about Ittefaq though. All these praises about Ittefaq and Akshay Khanna etc are understood now you have to promote Ittefaq.

    I am only interested in any update about your next movie signing. Hoping it is the Warrior movie with Aditya and not Don franchise movie.

    @bollyarena : Any update about next prospective SRK movie?

  4. Talking about the original Ittefaq, it was a pretty nice effort by Yash Chopra to come up with a good suspense movie. I will call it a good/v. good but not a classic. Special credit to Yash Chopra that he delivered a song-less movie and it was a good experience watching it.

    About the up-coming movie I have a feeling it will not be a copy-paste work. Already the promos reflect that the two characters are separately giving a different narrative which was not seen in the original movie. They might even change the ending (like they did with Don) to make a different experience than the previous one.

    Overall not interested as not a Sidharth-Sonakshi fan. One thing I am happy about that it is not another rom-com from Dharma. I hope it does well at BO for producers.

    SRK’s classic DTPH completed 20 years today.1 of the best films of late Yash Chopra Sir.
    Bollyarena, You should make a separate article on 20 years of DTPH.
    Disappointed with you.

    • 20 years of Sunil shettys bhai also. One article on that also bolly

  6. Spoiler of ittefaq:-
    Sid is painter who is short temper and kills her wife and then escapes from police and went to sonakshi house but sonakshi killed her husband and tells police that sid killed his husband but sid proves that he didn’t kill and police also verified and arrest sonakshi and atlast akshay also proves that sid didn’t murder his wife but his wife’s sis killed his wife.
    Verdict acc to me of rajesh khanna’s uttefaq:- super suspense thriller movie same as kahaani
    Lifetime:- 30-40
    Conclusion:- no need to watch new ittefaq for flop actor like did and aunty sonakshi

  7. Things that I liked about DTPH:

    1. SRK-Madhuri-Karishma pairing was good. All 3 looked great

    2. Music was top notch in fact a rage when movie released.

    3. Akshay’s supporting role was good.

    Other than above, not much else. The movie is a decent watch due to superb actors and music. I have seen a no. of Yash Chopra movies and I consider DTPH one of his weaker movies content wise.

    SRK won the Filmfare award for best actor. He was good in it. Still I were on the jury, I would have given Best Actor award to Kamal Hassan for Chachi 420 without a second thought. Outstanding performance by Kamal in a superb comedy movie.
