A source while talking to Mid-day was quoted saying, “Shahid has developed a great rapport with Prernaa Arora [one of the producers of KriArj Entertainment in the course of Batti Gul shoot. After this project, he is committed to doing two more films with the studio. So when they bought the remake rights of Woh Kaun Thi, he was one of the first choices to essay Manoj Kumar’s role.”
When Arora was asked if Shahid has signed the film, the producer neither confirmed nor rubbished the development. She said, “It’s too early to talk about the cast. We are just at the starting point.” Kri Raj along with the film have also acquired remake rights of the classic Lag Ja Gale and Naina Barse for the much talked about remake. The original film was helmed by Raj Khosla and starred Manoj Kumar and Sadhna.
