Watch: Theatrical trailer of Shaan Shahid’s ‘Arth’ released

Shaan is all set and gearing up for his next film, Arth. Arth is inspired by the 1982 film by Mahesh Bhatt.

Shaan is writing and directing the movie and is taking it to a more contemporary and modern look as opposed to the original. The production team just released a theatrical trailer that gives us an insight into the plot.

Arth is a film about a struggling musician (played by Shaan) living abroad Pakistan trying to find his place in the music industry.

Throughout the trailer, we can see Shaan trying to make music and get accepted into the industry but as it happens with all new musicians, he gets rejected over and over again.

Shaan is then met by a fan  (played by Uzma Hasan) who sets up a YouTube channel for him and his music quickly gains traction.

But at the same time, Uzma Hasan’s husband (played by Mohib Mirza) is having an affair with a superstar (played by Humaima Malick). With her marriage on the verge of breaking, Uzma develops a romantic interest for Shaan Shahid.
