Producers Ajay Kapoor and Sharat Chandra, have bought the rights of the well-known yesteryear movie Arth from Kuljit Pal. The Shabana Azmi-Kulbushan Kharbanda – Smita Patil starrer was directed by Mahesh Bhatt. The new Arth will be directed by South Indian actor and director Revathi. Bobby Deol has been roped in to play Kulushan Kharbanda’s character.
Revathi had played Shabana‘s role in the Tamil remake of Arth which was titled Marupadiyum (1993). She had wanted to do Smita’s role (Kavita) but got Shabana’s (Pooja). The new story from a man’s point of view – Inder (originally played by Kharbanda) reflects on his life, how he conducted it, the choices he made, whether he was right or wrong’.”
