The highly anticipated film, The Legend Of Maula Jatt, directed by Bilal Lashari and executive produced by Ammara Hikmat, is coming out on Eid ul Fitr 2020 (May 22nd 2020).

With an ensemble cast including Fawad Khan. Mahira Khan, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Humaima Malick, Ali Azmat; Faris Shafi and Gohar Rasheed; The film is a contemporary take on the Punjabi cult classic. This new version is co-written by Bilal and Nasir Adeeb, writer of the original Maula Jatt film.
In a recent press statement; Bilal warned that the film is not for the faint-hearted and children. “Parents might not find the film suitable for their kids because of the graphic nature of few scenes so I would strictly advise against bringing children to cinema. Such outright violence is not for the faint-hearted and little ones.”
The Legend of Maula Jatt features hardcore action sequences that one hasn’t seen in any Pakistani Punjabi movie before; Bilal has spent years finalizing the product before announcing its release.
“The film transcends cultural and linguistic divide,” the director further adding, “A Sindhi will enjoy it as much as any Punjabi. The content will be very palatable to the new generation that in times to come will extend the immortality of the fictional characters, Maula and Noori.”
