Released in 1978, Rajshri's hit 'Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se' won over the audience then, especially those who were young and in love. Sachin Pilgaonkar and Ranjeeta Kaur's heartfelt romance, songs, and movie's sad ending (heroine's demise) - everything about the movie has a memorable impression on movie buffs. And now in this new age of glitter and shine the banner is going to present a contemporary version of the classic movie.
Rajshri Productions is taking the magic of 'Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se' (AKJS) forward with a sequel titled 'Jaana Pehchana'. The movie will again feature Sachin and Ranjeeta in the lead.
Talking about the new project, Sachin revealed, "In AKJS, we saw the beautiful romance between Arun Mathur and Lily where eventually, Arun was left alone after his beloved,
Lily's (Ranjeeta) death and he has been living in her memory ever since. Jaana Pehchana introduces Asha (Ranjeeta), an author, who has an uncanny resemblance to Lily. She walks into the life of Arun Mathur to write his biography. What follows from there is a contemporary love story with a beautiful blend of old school romance combined with young love."
With 'Jaana Pehchana' one can see Sachin in different roles - he is not only acting in it but also did the screenplay and is even taking the directorial reins.
The movie's music will be composed by legendary Ravindra Jain whose compositions in the original went on to become a huge when they were released.
