The 1964 Bollywood classic Woh Kaun Thi?, featuring Sadhana and Manoj Kumar, is set to get a remake as its official rights have been acquired by KriArj Entertainment.
The psychological thriller, which was directed by Raj Khosla, had hugely popular songs composed by Madan Mohan.
Prernaa Arora and Arjun N Kapoor of KriArj Entertainment are set to remake it as a tribute to Kumar. It will also feature two iconic songs from the original film — Naina Barse Rimjhim and Lag Ja Gale Se, both sung by Lata Mangeshkar.
Arora said in a statement: “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 Kumarji who are true legends. This is a mark of respect and a tribute to them and the kind of films we had in that era.”
