Shahid Kapoor May Star In Manoj Kumar's Woh Kaun Thi? Remake

In addition, a source told mid-day that actor Shahid Kapoor, who is now engaged by the production house in Batti Gul Meter Chalu, is being considered for the lead role.

"The minute we acquired the remake rights we thought of the songs". It will also feature two iconic songs from the original film 'Naina Barse Rimjhim' and 'Lag Ja Gale Se', both immortalized by Lata Mangeshkar. When Deccan Chronicle quizzed her about which actress she would like to see lip sync the songs in the remake, the veteran singer said, "The melodies of Woh Kaun Thi were the soul of the theme".

KriArj has many more content driven films lined up for us this year. With a success ratio of 100%, the young production house has now purchased the remake rights of 1964's cult film, 'Woh Kaun Thi?' These two songs form the backbone of Woh Kaun Thi.

Kittel sprints to 6th stage victory, Kwiatkowski keeps…
Britain's Adam Yates won stage five of the week-long Tirreno-Adriatico race as Team Sky's Michal Kwiatkowski moved into the overall lead.

The tabloid quoted a source as saying, "Shahid has developed a great rapport with Prernaa Arora [one of the producers of KriArj Entertainment] in the course of Batti Gul Meter Chalu shoot". He knows we are planning a remake of his film.

The psychological thriller was directed by Raj Khosla.

Talking about re-making the classic, Prernaa told the daily, "This is our tribute to Manoj Kumar". When asked if Shahid is likely to step into Kumar's shoes, Arora said, "It's too early to talk about the cast". Take the songs away and you take away the film's heartbeat.
