Shah Rukh Khan all impressed with Akshaye Khanna, it's all about Ittefaq
Mumbai : Shah Rukh Khan has always been a big fan of Yash Chopra's 1969 cult classic Ittefaq. He always wanted to adapt the movie and also act in it; but this never happened due to his busy schedule and commitments. So, he decided to co-produce the movie with Karan Johar and Renu Ravi Chopra.
Now, when the movie has finished and has entered into the promotional phase, Mr Shah Rukh Khan seems completely impressed with the performances of the stars, especially Akshaye Khanna, who will be seen in the role of a tough cop.
Talking about Akshaye Khanna Shah Rukh Khan says, “Akshaye is unreadable and that’s one of the plus points of the film. Personally, I feel that nobody could have essayed this role better than him. Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha present an able foil to Akshaye’s character in the film, which just adds to his performance and portrayal of this tough, no-nonsense cop.”
He added, “I’ve always been extremely fond of Akshaye and his acting abilities. I’m a big fan of his work. There’s a strange mystique about him that reflects in his acting. He does very little, but conveys a gamut of emotions effortlessly. As an audience, he always keeps you guessing about his character’s journey”, he signs off.
Ittefaq has been scheduled to hit the silver screens on November 3 this year.
