Yami Gautam and Arjun N Kapoor are going to portray the lead characters in the remake of the classic thriller movie, Woh Kaun Thi. The movie is going to be directed by Kanishk Verma and is going to be shot in and around Kashmir. The third lead is yet to be cast. Woh Kaun Thi, which was directed by Raj Khosla, and starred Sadhana and Manoj Kumar in the lead roles, is one of the most popular psychological thrillers of Bollywood and the movie has been immortalized by the presence of three songs by Lata Mangeshkar, “Chhod Kar Tera Pyar Ka Daaman, Jo Hamne Dastaan Apni Sunaee and the most iconic of all, Lagjaa Gale.
There had been rumors that Aishwarya Rai and Deepika Padukone could join the project, as it was Lata ji’s wish to see them in the role of Sadhana. Shahid Kapoor was also rumored to be circling the male leading role. But now, it seems that the three stars were either unavailable, or had other engagements.
Woh Kaun thi is considered a psychological thriller, and Sadhana’s performance in the movie is still considered one of the best in the Genre. It is also talked about for its twisted story, which calls to mind some other classics by Alfred Hitchcock. The movie was a giant success when it was released, and it led to two other collaborations between the director and actress, in Mera Saaya and Anita.
