When Shatrughan imagined himself playing a cop in 'Ittefaq'

Monday, November 06, 2017

Sonakshi Sinha's actor-politician father Shatrughan Sinha was so intrigued by her latest film 'Ittefaq' that he imagined himself playing the role of the cop, essayed by Akshaye Khanna in the movie.

The actor said the veteran star was really impressed by the film and the performances. "My dad loved the film so much that he saw it twice in trials. I have not seen my dad so impressed for the longest time with my work, he had liked my work in 'Akira' and 'Lootera' and now this film," Sonakshi said.

"Infact when he was watching 'Ittefaq', he was telling me that as an actor he was intrigued by the film and that he was imagining himself playing the cop's role," she added.

Interestingly, Sonakshi had earlier said that her father was offered the original 'Ittefaq' movie, but he could not do it then. Talking about her wish to work with her father, Sonakshi said they will give their nod a to project which has enough scope of performance for both of them.

"There have been some offers but nothing interesting has come our way. We would like to do something completely different other than that (of doing a father-daughter) sort of a story," Sonakshi continued.

Sonakshi, 30, said her character in 'Ittefaq' has elements of mystery attached to it and that was the prime reason for her to say yes to the film. "I did the film because it was a professional challenge I was looking to do. It is exciting to play two characters in one film. It was almost like playing a double role. It challenged me as an actor. I have not done something like this before, so it was all the more exciting," she stated.

Produced by Karan Johar, Shah Rukh Khan and BR Studios, 'Ittefaq' is the remake of the 1969 film of the same name that featured Rajesh Khanna and Nanda in the lead roles. "I was open to comparisons with the original. But the film is being changed completely, only the essence of murder mystery, two people and a cop was maintained. I looked at it as a new film. It is a murder mystery, which is rarely made in Bollywood, so it was all the more exciting," Sonakshi said.
