Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt earned several accolades for the bold film Arth that dealt with infidelity and insecurities. The film that has even been made into a popular play will now be remade as a Pakistani film by producer-distributor Hammad Chaudhary in association with AAA Motion Pictures.
Arth starred Shabana Azmi, Smita Patil and Kulbushan Kharbanda in lead roles and revealed the story of a director who falls in love with an insecure actress despite being married. While the actress' insecurities make her life miserable, the wife who is cast away by her husband tries to recoup the setback and attempts to re-create her life. Arth 2 is modern take on relationships and is almost eighty percent complete. The film is slated to release in summer 2016.
