Bollywood's classic psychological mystery film, "Woh Kaun Thi" is all set to get a remake as it's official rights have been acquired by KriArj Entertainment.

The original film that was released in the year 1964 created a rage at the box office back then. The film not only received acclaims by the audiences but was all a hit among the critics.

Directed by Raj Khosla that film starred Sadhana, Manoj Kumar and Prem Chopra in lead roles and had remarkable songs composed by Madan Mohan.

Now, as per fresh reports, producers Prernaa Arora and Arjun N Kapoor under the banner of their production house KriArj Entertainment are all set to remake "Woh Kaun Thi" as a tribute to Manoj Kumar.

The remake version will retain two of the iconic songs from the original film -- "Naina barse rimjhim" and "Lag ja gale se", both sung by Lata Mangeshkar.

Prernaa said in a statement: "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 a mark of respect and a tribute to them and the kind of films we had in that era."

We also hear, Shahid Kapoor will be roped in to play Manoj Kumar's character in the film. However, the makers haven't officially announced about the casting of the film. But, there are talks that he has been taken on-board.

I saw the movie on YouTube. While the songs and the actors are good, the story does not make a lot of sense. The whole plot is narrated by the heroine at the end and it is quite useless.

If shahid is the hero they should bring back Amrita Arora for the demure girl role.

Manor Kumar looked real handsome in that movie and Shahid is losing whatever looks he once had
