The film, which is a reboot of 1979 cult classic Maula Jatt, is touted to be Pakistan’s most expensive production to date.
The release of the movie kept postponing for two years now because Sarwar Bhatti, the maker of the original movie had filed a copy right case against it.
Well, things have now settled down between director Bilal Lashari and Sarwat Bhatti and the matter has been resolved last week.
The film also stars Mahira Khan, Gohar Rasheed, Hamza Ali Abbasi and Humaima Malick in pivotal roles. Faris Shafi, Shafqat Cheema, and Nayyer Ejaz are also among the cast members.
The Screenplay of the film is by Bilal Lashari, dialogues by the Legendary writer of Maula Jatt 1979, Nasir Adeeb and story has been penned by Bilal Lashari and Nasir Adeeb. It is currently in the post-production phase.
Now when the film’s release date has finally been announced, we just can’t hold our excitement and are eagerly awaiting to witness the epic rivalry of Maula Jatt and Noori Nath on silver screens this Eid.
The Legend of Maula Jatt will also become the first film from Pakistan which will release in China the same day as its domestic release.
