Karan Johar: “Ittefaq will bring back edge of the seat entertainers“

  • Bollyspice
Filmmaker Karan Johar says that his next home production movie Ittefaq will bring back gripping entertainers. Johar recently shared that Ittefaq will bring back the age of edge-of-the-seat entertainers in Bollywood and that the film will hold the audience’s attention until the very end.

“Sidharth’s character (Vikram) seems to be the first suspect, there is Maya (played by Sonakshi)… Her character seems to have layers as she comes with a well-thought story that may or may not have happened. Both of them have different stories to tell, which keeps the guess going.”

“As both Vikram and Maya lose their spouses, this could be just a coincidence or it could be a well-plotted plan by the two of them to get rid of their partners and start a new life,” Karan said.

The makers of the movie unveiled the trailer of Ittefaq last week and features Sonakshi Sinha, Sidharth Malhotra and Akshaye Khanna.
