Sidharth Malhotra has opened up on the storyline of his upcoming movie 'Ittefaq' and stated that the movie is going to be an homage to the genre of murder mysteries.
He even quashed the reports of the movie being a remake of superstar Rajesh Khanna's classic hit 1969 of the same name, also starring Nanda, Bindu, Madan Puri and Iftekhar.
"'Ittefaq' is a murder mystery just like the old one. I would say we are not remaking it. We are adapting it to look more engaging in today's time. 'Ittefaq' is a true homage to the murder mystery genre," Sidharth told a news agency.
The 'Ek Villain' actor is quite excited about being a part of the murder mystery and has high hopes for it. However, he refused to divulge more details about 'Ittefaq'.
"Let's keep the mystery as it is a murder mystery. I hope people will like our effort," he added.
Besides Sidharth Malhotra, 'Ittefaq' will also star Sonakshi Sinha and Akshaye Khanna in key roles.
The movie will be helmed by B.R. Chopra's grandson Abhay Chopra. Interestingly, the original 'Ittefaq' was directed by the late Yash Chopra and produced by the late B.R. Chopra.
Currently, Sidharth Malhotra is busy with his upcoming movie 'Reload' opposite Jacqueline Fernandez.
Helmed by director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, the movie is expected to release on August 25.
