Pakistan's most-awaited film, Bilal Lashari's The Legend of Maula Jatt, finally has a release date!
After much speculation and even resignations of the movie never coming to fruition, the Bilal Lashari-directed movie has been given a release date of October 13.
The filmmakers have partnered with Geo Films as their presenting partner, the largest media group and key contributor of the revival of cinema in Pakistan.
The Legend of Maula Jatt is said to be one of the most expensive movies ever produced in Pakistan. It has perhaps the industry’s most expensively assembled cast of stars.
Even singers Faris Shafi and Ali Azmat are set to feature in the film.
The film will be locally distributed by Nadeem Mandviwalla of Mandviwalla Entertainment, well known for his contribution to cinema.
Initially set to release back in 2019, what was once said to be the most expensive Pakistani production to date, will finally hit theaters two years later on October 13, 2022.
Featuring immensely popular stars Fawad Khan as Maula Jatt and Mahira Khan as Mukkho, the Punjabi-language film is a reboot of Yunus Malik’s 1979 cult classic Maula Jatt.
Apart from Mahira and Fawad Khan, Hamza Ali Abbasi and Humaima Malik will also be seen in key roles.
As per the director Bilal Lashari: "A ten-year journey of creating an impossible film will conclude this October in a cinema near you."
The screenplay of The Legend of Maula Jatt is also from Lashari, with dialogues by Nasir Adeeb.
The film is produced by by Ammara Hikmat under the joint venture of Encyclomedia & Lashari films in association with AAA Motion Pictures.
