Shahid Kapoor may reprise Manoj Kumar's role in remake of Wo Kaun Thi; KriArj acquires film rights
Shahid Kapoor has signed a three film deal with KriArj Entertainment and is reportedly the top choice to play the lead role in the remake of Wo Kaun Thi.
KriArj Entertainment has bought the remake rights of the 1964 classic thriller Wo Kaun Thi and Shahid Kapoor might play the lead in the film.
Prernaa Arora, co-owner of KriArj Entertainment, has recently expressed her excitement over the film's rights being bought. She confirmed the news and said to Mid-Day, " This is our tribute to Manoj Kumar. He knows we are planning a remake of his film. We have also acquired the rights of two songs, 'Lag Jaa Gale' and 'Naina Barse'."
The same publication claims that Shahid is the first choice of Prernaa for the role of Manoj Kumar. Shahid, who is on a three-film contract with KriArj, has wrapped up the first film Batti Gul Meter Chalu.
On being asked if she is considering Shahid, Prerna dodged the question and said to Mid-Day, "It's too early to talk about the cast. We are just at the starting point."
The Raj Khosla directorial had two super hit songs of legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar, 'Lag Jaa Gale' and 'Naina Barse'. 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. Take the songs away and you take away the film’s heartbeat. Who would I like to see singing my songs in the remake? Aishwarya (Rai) Bachchan or Deepika Padukone."
