KriArj Entertainment has acquired the remake rights of the 1964 film along with two songs - Naina Barse Rimjhim Rimjhim and Lag Ja Gale. "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," Prernaa said in a statement, reports IANS. Both Naina Barse Rimjhim Rimjhim and Lag Ja Gale have been sung by Lata Mangeshkar and composed by Madan Mohan.

"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," she added. Who Kaun Thi? was directed by Raj Khosla.
