Sidharth Malhotra plays an intense role of an author in the whodunit, which also stars Sonakshi Sinha and Akshaye Khanna. Previously, Sidharth has delivered impressive performances, as recently seen in films like A Gentleman.
Interestingly, the makers have decided to pump in digital content while keeping the actors away from the media, to ensure that the air of suspense and mystery stays intact till the film’s release.
“The movie has been produced at a very reasonable cost, which has been recovered via the OTT platforms, music and satellite deals that our company enjoys with its partners. Its global release will be aggressive yet controlled to ensure that it reaches everyone without overloading cinemas,” says Gaurav Verma, Chief Revenue Officer of Red Chilies Entertainment.
“Ittefaq will keep the audience glued to their seats. It has been modernised keeping today’s sensibilities in mind, blending entertainment with a strong story,” says Juno Chopra, the creative producer of the film.
