According to reports, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who was set to star in the remake of cult Hindi film Woh Kaun Thi (1964), is no longer associated with the project. Reportedly, the former beauty queen has been replaced by her Dhoom 2 (2006) co-star Bipasha Basu.
Reports about the Woh Kaun Thi remake first hit the headlines in 2017. When Aish was asked about the same, she had also confirmed the news saying that the makers had approached her to play the lead role, originally played by veteran Sadhana.
Besides Aish, Shahid Kapoor was also said to have been signed to get into the shoes of Manoj Kumar. But now it looks like that the whole project has gone for a massive reshuffle.
The project was initially being produced by KriArj Entertainment, but now it will be bankrolled by a newly launched banner Studio Five Elements. Arjun N Kapoor, who is one of the producers on the project, will play the male lead in the remake.
The film rolls on 10th November.
