After Farhan Akhtar’s cult Dil Chahta Hai (2001), Aamir Khan and Akshaye Khanna have never been seen together in a film. But the two did come together earlier this month when Aamir had invited Khanna for a special screening of Secret Superstar, starring Zaira Wasim, Meher Vij and himself. 

Now, the Border actor is returning the favour by holding a special screening of his upcoming thriller Ittefaq for Aamir. 

A source has said that Aamir is impressed by the trailer of the film. “While having a chat Aamir told Akshaye that he was intrigued by Ittefaq’s trailer and is looking forward to watching the film,” said the source. 

The source also added that, after Aamir’s reaction, Khanna told the makers to hold a special screening of the film. Khanna will play host to Aamir. 

The film is the official remake of Yash Chopra’s well-appreciated Ittefaq (1969). It starred Rajesh Khanna, Nanda, Iftekhar and Bindu. 

The remake is helmed by the debutant Abhay Chopra. He has made few short films before making his feature film debut. 

Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment and BR Chopra Productions have joined hands to produce for the film.
