It is still about one night but the makers have modified the script. Otherwise, there won’t be any fun in the film as everyone knows what the original film was all about. All the characters in the remake are motivated differently.
Sidharth Malhotra also informed that the runtime of the film will shorter which shall work better for this forthcoming thriller. He revealed that it will be a very short, quick film. Their plan is to make it in a very thrilling manner- in two hours or maybe less than that.
Praising the script and talking about the film, Sidharth says that he is extremely excited for Ittefaq. The original film is a benchmark for him which has already been set, as superstar Rajesh Khanna was a part of the film back then, and he will now have to match up to his acting abilities in this remake.
