- Who Kaun Thi? featured Manoj Kumar and Sadhana in lead roles
- Shahid's Batti Gul Meter Chalu producers have acquired the remake rights

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.
Shahid Kapoor was last seen in "Padmaavat" and currently he's filming Batti Gul Meter Chalu with co-star Shraddha Kapoor. This is Shahid and Shraddha's second film together after 2015's Haider.
