Mumbai: Speculations were rife that a remake of 1964 classic Woh Kaun Thi was being planned with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan portraying the character originally essayed by Sadhana. But if the latest reports are anything to go by, Bipasha Basu has replaced the former Miss World as the leading lady.
According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, Bipasha has been roped in by the makers.
The remake rights of Woh Kaun Thi have been acquired by Prernaa Arora and her business partner Arjun N Kapoor.
