Lollywood is booming back and it’s going to be bombastic with the New Pakistani Film Arth 2, 2014 by Shan Shahid which is a remake of Indian Movie Arth by Mahesh Bhatt. Shaan Shahid would play the central character in the movie and most probably Humaima Malik in Arth 2 would be the leading lady. Interestingly, Humaima Malik has been casted as the female lead, instead of taking it a daunting task she is taking it like just another film. However, the burden of filling Samita Patil’s shoes is a huge one.
Arth was a semi-autobiographical account of Mahesh Bhatt and his extra-marital affair with Parveen Babi. Thefilm received great critical acclaim and is considered one of the must-watch Bollywood movies of all time. Bhatt, who is the writer and director of the original movie, showed interest in providing his services for writing the re-make; a cross border collaboration that was initiated by Shaan Shahid. Pervez Kaleem is expected to write the screenplay for Arth, who is a well-known screenwriter from Lollywood, and has written widely-appreciated films like, Mujhay Chand Chahiye and Moosa Khan, under his belt.
