Conflict between Shaan and Humayun regarding Arth2



Eminent and veteran Pakistani actor Shaan Shahid held a press conference in Lahore on Tuesday and told a few harsh words for Humayun Saeed about the Arth2.

He stated that Humayun was “only involved…because [the film’s previous backer] ARY was pushing for him” he further added that Humayun’s role in the film is now being performed by Mohib Mirza, whom he had initially desired for the role.

Nevertheless, well known Pakistani actor Humayun has commented differently about his departure from the movie.

He commented that leaving the film Arth 2 was totally his own verdict; he was referring to Shaan’s currently viral statement as “a publicity stunt”.

Famous actor from JPNA stated that “They’re unhappy with my decision to drop out of Arth 2. I’m working on several other projects which I couldn’t abandon just because they suddenly decided to finally commence the Arth 2 shoot,”

Arth 2’s initial look exposed in mid-2014.

He further added that “I’m flying to Romania today for a film’s recce with Nadeem Baig and Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar. And I’m also writing JPNA 2 and working on another untitled film. I have to produce and act in these projects, so taking out 2-3 months for Arth would mean that my own projects would suffer.”

The actor from Bin Roye movie said that “I don’t want to get involved in the situation,” then continued as, “It doesn’t suit me to give an ulta seedha answer. Shaan is like my older brother, so whatever he says must be right. And Mohib is like my younger brother, and I think the role suits him better. I wish them all the best.”

Explain regarding his upcoming ventures, he added that he has also quit the Mahesh Bhatt’s Punjabi film Dushman for the similar cause. He told that he is making efforts to take some other Pakistani actor to perform in the movie in its place and named Mikaal Zulfiqar as a probable substitute.
