He also shared the story behind a small change in the lead cast. According to him ARY Films was backing Arth 2 earlier and Humayun Saeed was part of the film because of them. As soon as ARY Films withdrew their support from the film, Saeed was replaced with Mohib Mirza, his first choice for the character.

Mohib Mirza as a return expressed gratitude to the actor of more than 570 films for taking him on board for the project.

While talking to the media Bol girl Humaima Malik praised Shaan Shahid as an actor and director. She also castigated some of the stars of the industry for enjoying the limelight and undue public appreciation despite having little to no contribution to the local film industry.

In the pres conference the recorded video message of Mahesh Bhutt was played. Bhutt showed the confidence on the remake of his hit movie and wished the entire team best. He also shared that he did not take any penny for giving the rights of the film to Shaan Shahid.

The film is expected to release in 2016. Shaan will also appear in action thriller Yalghaar in 2016.
