Remakes are still the flavour of the day in B-town and it seems another classic is all set to be given a contemporary feel. BizAsiaLive.com has learnt that KriArj Entertainment is going to remake ‘Woh Kaun Thi’ (1964).
Prernaa Arora from KriArj confirmed the remake and also said that two iconic songs will be remade too. “The minute we acquired the remake rights we thought of the songs. These two songs form the backbone of Woh Kaun Thi. The film cannot be imagined without those songs”, she said, according to Deccan Chronicle.
Lata Mangeshkar is glad that the two songs are being kept in the remake. She commented, “The melodies of Woh Kaun Thi were the soul of the theme. Take the songs away and you take away the film’s heartbeat. Did we think the songs would become such big hits? We never created music thinking of posterity. I never knew Lag jaa gale would become so popular. But I do remember the film’s leading man Manoj Kumar was at the recordings and he predicted that the songs would be legendary”.
It’s not known how the casting will turn out but Mangeshkar said she would like to see Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Deepika Padukone feature in both of the tracks.
