Ac­tor Son­akshi Sinha said that her ac­tor-politi­cian fa­ther Sha­trughan Sinha was first of­fered the 1969 film It­te­faq but ac­tor Ra­jesh Khanna even­tu­ally played the lead role in the movie di­rected by Yash Cho­pra. Son­akshi said that work­ing on the re­make was an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity for her as the role helped her ditch the quin­tes­sen­tial good girl im­age that she has in Hindi films. “My dad was sup­posed to do the orig­i­nal It­te­faq, and I am there in the re­make ver­sion, so it’s a big thing for me. I think that life has come full cir­cle,” Son­akshi said. She added, “I am up­set that I have been the quin­tes­sen­tial good girl of Hindi cinema... There are two sides to me, and that is what at­tracted me to do the film.” The film movie is di­rected by Ab­hay Cho­pra and pro­duced by three ma­jor pro­duc­tion houses. Be­sides Son­akshi, the re­make fea­tures actors Sidharth Mal­ho­tra and Ak­shaye Khanna.
