Unfortunately the film had been the victim of a legal dispute. The dispute went on for 2 years as the movie is a reboot of the 80s Punjabi classic Maula Jatt. That is why the film was embroiled in a legal battle over copyright violations. The producer of the original film Sarwar Bhatti filed a lawsuit against director Bilal Lashari and producer Ammara Hikmat. But, seems like it has finally been resolved.
Back in February 2020, Fawad Khan announced that The Legend of Maula Jatt release date is set for Eid-ul-Fitr which was May 13, 2021. This was after all the legal trouble was resolved.
With stellar acting talent, The Legend of Maula Jatt cast includes Hamza Ali Abbasi as Noori Nath, with Mahira Khan and Humaima Malick as the leading ladies. The released date is said to be 30th September 2022 and we are hoping everything goes right this time. Pakistani audience is very excited for this. Looks like we’ll finally get to see this Punjabi action film in theaters soon.
