Arth 2 is remake of Mahesh Bhatt’s 1982 classic of the same name. Arth 2 turned from an idea to a feature film back when Shaan Shahid met Mahesh Bhatt in 2015 and expressed the desire to remake the film, the story is pretty much the same and is set in current day Lahore, Pakistan.
“Arth is the first film with the DNA of an Indian story to be set in Pakistan. If we want to strengthen film trade between our countries, Arth’s model is a great way of collaborating,” Shaan stated previously.
Mahesh Bhatt has been drooling over the film ever since the beginning and when the new sound track ‘Murshed Ji’ came out yesterday it wasn’t surprising when he went all fanboy over it, took to his twitter and wrote “SENSATIONAL! Rahat Bhai and Bagga come together and set the screen ablaze. Shaan staggers you with his animal vitality!”
