Shahid Kapoor may possibly step into the shoes of Manoj Kumar for the remake of ‘Woh Kaun Thi’. Now recent reports suggest that “Aishwarya Rai Bachchan might star opposite Shahid Kapoor in the film”. Well if the news is true then this will surely be an interesting pair to watch out for on the big screen.
However, earlier when Prernaa the producer of the film was asked about the same she said “It’s too early to talk about the cast. We are just at the starting point.” Along with the film the production house has also acquired remake rights of the classic ‘Lag Ja Gale’ and ‘Naina Barse’.
Speaking about acquiring the rights of the cult movie, Prernaa Arora 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 Kumarji who are true legends. This is the mark of respect and attributes to them and the kind of film we had in that era.”
At this point, Shahid Kapoor is shooting along with Shraddha Kapoor for ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ while Aishwarya is shooting for ‘Fanne Khan’ along with Rajkummar Rao and Anil Kapoor.
