977 reported earlier today that a ‘Woh Kaun Thi’ (1964) remake was on the cards. News has it that Shahid Kapoor is tipped for the lead male role and he’s to seek Manoj Kumar’s blessings.

It seems before he agrees to the film, he will be meeting Kumar to get his blessings. A source close to the project told Asian Age, “Shahid feels it’s only proper to touch base with the original cast and crew. But not many people associated with the original are still alive. Director Raj Khosla, and music director Madan Mohan are no longer with us, and neither is Sadhana, who played the ethereal spirit. This leaves Manoj Kumar. Shahid will meet him, as this version of Who Kaun Thi is meant to be a tribute to the original.”

There have been rumours that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan could be Kapoor’s love interest in the film but KriArj Entertainment, who have acquired the rights for the film, have denied that the cast has been decided yet.
