Akshaye Khanna, Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha shot the promotional song of their upcoming film Ittefaq. The track, ‘Ittefaq Se’, a reprised avatar of ‘Raat Baaki’ from Amitabh Bachchan-Shashi Kapoor’s Namak Halaal, releases today. The original song’s first stanza, which ended with ‘Pyaar Se’, has been aptly replaced with ‘Ittefaq Se’, in keeping with genre of the film — a rebooted version of Yash Chopra’s 1969 suspense thriller of the same name.
The video features the directorial debut of Abhay Chopra without any dance moves. They’re instead seen in their on-screen avatars, in accordance with the film’s mysterious theme.
The song will be part of the rolling credits of the film, which has a runtime of just 100 minutes. After an intriguing trailer, the makers have kept their fingers crossed for the response to the only song from the otherwise song-less thriller.
Ittefaq is jointly produced by B R Films, Dharma Productions and Red Chillies Entertainment. It releases on November 3.
