Now that the producers KriArj Entertainment have decided to remake Raj Khosla’s 1964 supernatural classic Who Kaun Thi the casting process has begun in right earnest. Rumours suggest that Shahid Kapoor, who is already playing the lead in the same producer’s under-production film Batti Gul Meter Chalu has been pencilled in to play the role that Manoj Kumar essayed in the original.
However before Shahid gives his final nod he will apparently meet the legendary actor Manoj Kumar. A source close to the project reveals, “Shahid feels it is only proper to touch base with the original cast and crew. But, not many of the people associated with the original are still alive. Director Raj Khosla and music director Madan Mohan are no longer with us. Sadhana who played the ethereal spirit in white is also no more. That leaves us with only Manoj Kumar. Shahid will meet the veteran actor, as this remake of Who Kaun Thi is meant to be a tribute to the original.”
Until we hear more about this amazing remake, let’s rewind back to this iconic song from the original film!
