KriArj Entertainment has confirmed the remake of the classic thriller ‘Woh Kaun Thi’ (1964), with rumours suggesting Shahid Kapoor could be roped in for the main lead.

As well as the remake rights for the film, the new adaptation will also include the iconic songs “Naina Barse Rim Jim” and “Lag Ja Gale” both rendered by Lata Mangeshkar. Kapoor will play the part originally played by Manoj Kumar.

The film is all set to be remade by producers Prernaa Arora and Arjun N Kapoor of KriArj Entertainment and will pay tribute to Manoj Kumar. It will also feature two iconic songs from the original film ‘Naina barse rimjhim’ and ‘Lag ja gale se’, both immortalised by Lata Mangeshkar.

Talking about the acquisition, Prernaa Arora from KriArj Entertainment said, “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. Also, it is a classic timeless film with the epitome of beauty Sadhanaji, Lataji and the great Actor Manoj Kumar who are true legends. This is the mark of respect and attribute to them and the kind of film we had in that era.”
