It seems like only yesterday that it was announced a Maula Jatt reboot is in the works.
Just kidding. It feels like forever ago.
Ever since it was announced that Fawad Khan and Hamza Ali Abbasi will star as Maula Jatt and Noori Nath, people have been waiting impatiently for the film to release. And waiting. And waiting.
Even when the much awaited trailer dropped people were still waiting. And waiting. Sorry, it's just been so long now.
Finally, the film is ready to release in May. For real this time.
According to executive producer Ammara Hikmat, “It was a really ambitious project, so naturally we met a lot of challenges and the film took longer than we expected, to release. However, the film is in final stages of post production and will be in cinemas on Eid.”
Directed by Bilal Lashari and produced by Ammara Hikmat, the film also boasts a star roster including Mahira Khan, Humaima Malick, Ali Azmat, Shafqat Cheema and Nayyer Ejaz.
The Legend of Maula Jatt has been written not just by Lashari but also by veteran Nasir Adeeb, who wrote the original 1979's Maula Jatt.
