According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, the actress has been approached to play the role played by Smita Patil in the original.In an earlier interview to the daily, Jacqueline had admitted to taking acting classes at the Ivana Chubbuck Studio in Los Angeles as she wants to get experimental with her roles.

She said, “Now, it’s all about balancing the two.” She also said that since the last couple of years, she has been looking for scripts that will take her out of her comfort zone.In 2017, Sharat Chandra announced the remake of Arth with South actress Revathi playing one of the leads.

The source added, “Now, with that in place, the makers reached out to Jacqueline recently and she really liked both, the concept and her role. She is really excited to be a part of the remake of an iconic film like Arth and has given her verbal consent to the part but is yet to sign on the dotted line.”advertisementArth is a story about Pooja (Shabana Azmi) whose haert breaks when she gets to know about her husband Inder (Kulbhushan Kharbanda) has fallen in love with another woman Kavita (Smita Patil).
