Aishwarya Rai, getting into Nargis' shoes in the Raat Aur Din remake, has been the talk of town since the past 2 weeks. You know that the film will be produced by KriArj Entertainment and Siddharth Anand\, but bet you didn't know who will direct it!

It's Abbas-Mustan.

The duo have a wonderful script for the remake which caught Kriarj head honchos Prernaa Arora and Arjun Kapoor's eye and made them bring the duo on board.

The balance cast is yet to be decided. The hunt for two male actors- who will essay the flamboyant Feroz Khan's role and the sober Pradeep Kumar's part- is proceeding at feverish pace. The other modalities are also being fast worked out.

Raat Aur Din is a 1967 Indian Bollywood film directed by Satyen Bose. The leading actress, Nargis, won the distinguished National Film Award for Best Actress for her role as Varuna, a married woman who suffers from multiple personality disorder. By day, she is a typical Hindi homemaker, whilst at night she calls herself Peggy and walks the streets of Calcutta.

Meanwhile, Aishwarya has been busy shooting for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Fanne Khan. She is paired opposite Rajkummar Rao in the film, which also features Anil Kapoor in the lead.
