Shah Rukh Khan just dropped a truth-bomb that he wanted to do Ittefaq himself since it is an adaptation of his mentor director, Yash Chopra’s 1969 classic Ittefaq that starred Rajesh Khanna and Nanda. But, because SRK couldn’t do it due to prior commitments, he decided to co-produce the suspense thriller with Karan Johar and Renu Ravi Chopra.
However now that the film is ready to release, we have learnt that King Khan is extremely happy with the way the upcoming movie has panned out.
Sonakshi Sinha, Akshaye Khanna and Sidharth Malhotra are looking every bit impressive in the trailer of the film, but SRK has a favourite actor amongst the three. Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is totally impressed by Akshaye’s performance in not just the movie but he thinks that Akshay has ‘a strange mystique about him that reflects in his acting.’
Akshaye Khanna portrays the role of a tough cop in Ittefaq, Sidharth plays Vikram Sethi and Sonakshi plays Maya. SRK on their performances says, “Akshaye is unreadable and that’s one of the plus points of the film. Personally , I feel that nobody could have essayed this role better than him. Sidharth and Sonakshi Sinha present an able foil to Akshaye’s character in the film, which just adds to his performance and portrayal of this tough, no-nonsense cop.”

SRK then specially adds, “I’ve always been extremely fond of Akshaye and his acting abilities. I’m a big fan of his work. There’s a strange mystique about him that reflects in his acting. He does very little, but conveys a gamut of emotions effortlessly. As an audience, he always keeps you guessing about his character’s journey”.
Ittefaq is produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, BR Studios and Dharma Productions, and will hit the theatres on November 3.
