Monday 23rd October 2017 – Last week it was revealed that Sonakshi Sinha, Sidharth Malhotra and Akshaye Khanna were toiling at a suburban studio in Mumbai to shoot for the promotional song of their upcoming film, Ittefaq.
The track, Ittefaq Se, is a reprised avatar of Raat Baaki from Amitabh Bachchan-Shashi Kapoor starrer Namak Halaal. The original song’s first stanza, which ended with Pyaar Se, has been aptly replaced with Ittefaq Se, in keeping with genre of the film — a rebooted version of Yash Chopra’s 1969 suspense thriller of the same name.
Raat Baaki was written by Anjaan, composed by Bappi Lahiri and sung by Bappi and Asha Bhosle. The new track, recreated by Tanishq Bagchi, has additional lyrics and vocals by Tanishq, and singers Nikita Gandhi and Jubin Nautiyal.
Directed by Abhay Chopra, Ittefaq releases in cinemas on 3rd November 2017.
