Bilal Lashari’s upcoming version of Maula Jatt, which is a remake of sorts of the 1979 Maula Jatt, is one of the most highly anticipated, under-production Pakistani films. Starring Fawad Khan, Mahira Khan, Hamza Ali Abbasi and Humaima Malick, the film is soon to release but an official date hasn’t been announced yet.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Pakistan, writer of the upcoming film Nasir Adeeb spoke about the difference between the two films. “The difference between the first Maula Jatt and the upcoming film is same as the one between an evening of 1979 and a morning of 2018,” he said. “Those who watched the film in 1979 and have now stopped watching films will definitely watch this one to see what the new team has done with it.”
Nasir Adeeb also mentioned that there is a huge difference between the audiences of then and now. “Those who watched the 1979 film, their children will be watching the upcoming Maula Jatt,” he added. “They think rationally and logically and don’t approve of anything that doesn’t make sense. This is the difference between the stories of the two films.”
When asked about the business potential of the upcoming film, the writer informed that he has told Bilal Lashari that if his film doesn’t touch 100-crore mark, it’s a flop. Let’s wait and watch if the film lives up to the hype and expectations.
