Akshaye Khanna


The release of Ittefaq has good reviews in its favour but the box office collection is treading slow. However, actor Akshaye Khanna states that the analysis of the movie’s box office collection is at the premature stage.

“The movie just released. But the initial response that I got has been positive… so we will analyze it [the film] later,” said Akshaye Khanna at the press meet which was held after the release of the movie. The meet was also attended by his co-stars Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha.

Being a remake of the 1969 movie, Ittefaq is produced by three production houses. Speaking about the camaraderie of producers, Akshaye Khanna said, “There were no disagreements among the producers. Sometimes there are fights, but nothing like that happened in the case of this film. Everything went smoothly. Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar [producers] are good friends.”

There were no promotions for the film Ittefaq and the actor stands in support with the decision, Akshaye said, “When the viewers watch the promo of a film, they decide whether they want to watch it or not. After that, even if an actor gives several interviews, I don’t think it matters or makes a difference. But it [film promotions] definitely creates awareness.”

Akshaye Khanna had taken a long break from films before returning with Mom starring Sridevi. He, now, wants to do more films.

“I will do more films now. I have received some offers and will announce my next project soon,” he said.
