The Legend of Maula Jatt will release in Pakistan and China simultaneously
Bilal Lashari's much-awaited directorial, The Legend of Maula Jatt finally has a release date!
The movie will hit cinemas on Eid-ul-Fitr 2019; the flick, starring Mahira Khan, Humaima Malick, Fawad Khan and Hamza Ali Abbasi, (Ali Azmat will also make a cameo!) will also become the first film from Pakistan which will release in China the same day as its domestic release.
Talking to Images, Lashari shared, “This film will connect with an international audience as much as our core audience."
According to a press release, China has a limited quota for foreign films and so, only a handful of movies make the cut after thorough scrutiny by the Chinese regulatory authorities. Till date, a few Hollywood movies (such as Spider Man 2, Captain America, X Men and Jurassic World) have been able to score a Chinese theatrical release overlapping with US domestic & worldwide release.
The upcoming flick is said to be Pakistan's most expensive production to date.
