Only a few days ago, BizAsia reported that Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment had acquired the remake rights of 1969 film ‘Ittefaq’.
Its now being said that the film, which was produced originally under the B.R Chopra banner and directed by Yash Chopra, will see Abhay Chopra (grandson of B.R Chopra) direct the new version. It is expected to go on the floors later this year.
A source told Deccan Chronicle, ���The work on the film has started and Abhay has spent a lot of time writing the subject. SRK won�۪t play a part in it though; he is only producing the film. The casting is in process and it will mostly have new names. SRK has his hands full with Anand L. Rai and Imtiaz�۪s next and is currently off movie commitments since he is nursing a knee injury.�
Varun Dhawan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui will reportedly star in the film.
