Directed by Bilal Lashari, known for his directorial debut and box office mega hit Waar, The Legend of Maula Jatt is touted to be the most expensive film to come out of Pakistan so far. This intense and epic hero origin story, with a screenplay by Bilal Lashari and dialogues by Nasir Adeeb, is a hard reboot of the 1979 cult classic Maula Jatt.

Starring Fawad Khan in the role of the legendary Maula Jatt and Hamza Ali Abbasi as his arch nemesis, Noori Natt, the film reimagines cinema’s greatest rivalry. The ensemble cast also features Mahira Khan, Humaima Malick, Gohar Rasheed, Faris Shafi, Ali Azmat, Shafqat Cheema and Nayyer Ejaz.

The film is produced by Ammara Hikmat under the joint venture of Encyclomedia & Lashari films in association with AAA Motion Pictures. The filmmakers have partnered with Geo Films as their presenting partner. The film will be locally distributed by Nadeem Mandviwalla of Mandviwalla Entertainment. Internationally, the film will be distributed by MovieGoers Entertainment.

The makers have chosen a non-holiday release for the film which is going to be Fawad Khan’s comeback appearance on the big screen and we certainly hope it pays back in huge box office numbers.
