Remakes in Bollywood are a common recipe though not always a successful one. But better expectations can be had when KriArj Entertainment, one the successful production houses in the industry announces a remake of a cult classic like Woh Kaun Thi. The production biggie has bought out the official rights of the 1964 classic.
Considered to be one of Bollywood’s iconic psychological thriller, the film starred Sadhana and Manoj Kumar and was directed by Raj Khosla. It also featured cult songs like ‘Naina barse rimjhim’ and ‘Lag ja gale se’ sung by Lata Mangeskar and musically directed by Madan Mohan. The movie is said to be a tribute to Manoj Kumar.
“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,” said producer Prerna Arora of KriArj.
