The trailer for Shaan Shahid's much-anticipated film Arth - The Destination released Friday and it looks all sorts of intense!
Arth 2 is Shaan's attempt at remaking the 1982 Mahesh Bhatt classic Arth "to strengthen film trade between the two countries", and could mark the actor's comeback in romantic films "after many years", a press release quoted him as saying.
What we’ve gathered from the trailer so far is that Shaan plays the role of a singer called Ali who returns to Pakistan from the UK to make a professional comeback. We see towards the middle of the three minute trailer that this turns out to be harder than expected. And then comes the distraction.
Mohib Mirza will be seen as Umar, a filmmaker who’s married to Uzma Hassan’s character, also called Uzma, a writer by day, Ali’s fan girl by night.
Then we’ve got Humaima in full diva mode. She plays the role of a superstar and also the other woman in Mirza’s life. There’s talk about pain, crying, hints of infidelity; looks like this one’s going to be an emotional roller coaster to watch!
Shaan will step into Raj Kiran’s shoes; Humaima Mallick—the star of the film Bol—will be seen playing Samita Patil’s role of Kavita; Mohib Mirza—one of the lead actors of the film Dukhtar—as Inder Malhotra, and Uzma Hassan—the actress from one of the most popular Pakistani Drama serials Ullu Baraye Farokht Nahin—will be seen playing Shabana Azmi’s role of Pooja.
The film is expected to release on December 21 in cinemas worldwide.
