Mahesh Bhatt’s semi-autobiographical film ARTH released in 1982 became a classic film of Bollywood.


Almost three decades later filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt has sold the rights of his directorial venture. And now writer Kamlesh Pandey has been roped in to pen down the remake of ARTH keeping in mind the contemporary situation of today’s world. 

Talking to a leading publication writer Kamlesh said, “It is a challenge to remake a film like ARTH which I believe was ahead of its time. It was not only about infidelity, but also about the two women (played by Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil) finding true meaning to their lives. While we intend to keep this basic plot line the same-revolving around a man and two women- their relationships will be treated differently keeping the present environment in mind.”

Well with the script of the remake being worked upon we are eagerly waiting to see who the makers will cast in the roles of Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil.
