Web Desk: Actor and filmmaker Shaan Shahid’s ‘Arth 2’ hit the cinemas in Pakistan. The movie is a remake of Mahesh Bhatt’s 1982’s hit ‘Arth’.
Shan played the leading role in the movie. While interviewing shan said, “The collaboration [with an Indian crew] was important. I think we in Pakistan can do for India what China is doing for America. The cost of making a film in India is now so high that I think within five years, they won’t be able to afford to make A-grade films there anymore. They will have to find places where they can go and make films. I hope this adaptation of an Indian classic starts something special between the two countries. So I guess that was the biggest motivating factor that drew me to the film.”
“It would have been very easy for me to name the film something else, but I didn’t and opted for the original because I wanted the Indian audiences to know that there are people out there who want to get connected to them through films. I think this is a bridge we need to develop as humans, without any political powers being involved in it.” he added.
Bhatt tweeted to appreciate the shaan’s efforts, “A stunning looking film shot with passion. Thank u @mshaanshahid for bringing the film that hurled me into history to a whole new audience.”
