Although mystery thrillers are quite a rage in the West, Bollywood has not been very keen on making enough movies in that genre. However, it is only lately that the remake of Yash Chopra's 1969 murder mystery 'Ittefaq', has been planned. Red Chillies Entertainment, Dharma Production and BR Films will jointly produce this remake, which will star Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha, playing Rajesh Khanna and Nan's character respectively.
Sidharth also states that the plot will undergo slight changes, as everyone knows what the original film was about, and the same storyline would not leave any mystrey to be unfolded. Secondly, the runtime of the movie will be really short, as it favours the genre. The film will not be more than two hours long, rather shorter than that and will release in the later half of 2017.
