Actor Bobby Deol might star in the remake of Mahesh Bhatt‘s Arth. Bobby has been approached to play Kulbhushan Kharbanda’s role in the movie. Bobby confirmed the news to the Times of India as he said that he is in talks but have not signed the film yet. The remake will be directed by Revathi and it is likely to go on floors this year. It is being backed by Ajay Kapoor and Sharat Chandra. Talking about the female leads, they are not yet finalised but reports state that Swara Bhasker and Jacqueline Fernandez might play the female leads. However, there is no confirmation yet. Taapsee Pannu was approached by the producers to play the role of Shabana Azmi but she refused due to her work commitments.

Revathi who is helming the movie played Shabana’s role in the Tamil remake of Arth, titled Marupadiyum. Sharat feels that Revathi is the perfect choice to direct the movie. Earlier, he told TOI, “Let me tell you that she wanted to do Smita’s role (Kavita) but got Shabana’s (Pooja). That film did well and I am very excited to now jump into the remake. Frankly, it’s a new story. It’s a 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.”

Revathi had earlier said ‘no’ to direct the film but later she felt that she can do justice to a film based on relationships. She said that it would be interesting to make the film in this context in contemporary times, “This is because over the years, certain aspects of relationships have changed and some haven’t. This is what drove me to say ‘yes’,” said Revathi.
