More About 1982’s Arth by Mahesh Butt
The 1982 Arth followed the story of a filmmaker who has an extra-marital affair with one of the actresses he worked with. He decides to leave his wife for the actress and then the film follows the woman as she searches for her identity.
Mahesh Bhatt also commented on the supposedly remake saying:
Shaan sahib is remaking a film that I started my career with, and that makes me very happy. I am very keen to see how he will interpret it. Every filmmaker has his own worldview, and he has complete freedom to reinterpret it however he wishes.
