Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan’s Legend of Maula Jatt NOT Delayed, Court Issues Order

Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan’s upcoming film Legend of Maula Jatt is not delayed as shown by court order

Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan were set to appear together in the upcoming film The Legend of Maula Jatt which is directed by Bilal Lashari and is set to be celebrating the character of ‘Maula Jatt’. The film was in considerable controversy due to a lawsuit extended on it by Sarwar Bhatti, who claimed Maula Jatt was his property. Producer Ammara Hikmat shared the news on her twitter, saying,

“TRUTH PREVAILS,” the producer tweeted, “Lahore High Court clarifies today that there is NO stay order on #TheLegendOfMaulaJatt release!! The application was moved by us to put an end to the malicious propaganda spread by the opposing party.”

There was plenty of back and forth in the news about the lawsuit against the film. It was initially supposed to release in June but apparently has been pushed to a further date. Ammara Hikmat clarified saying, “The film has been delayed for a strategic reason, not any legal issue. The new release date will be announced very soon. Till then, please don’t pay heed to any negative propaganda.”

Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan would be appearing together in a feature film for the very first time. The duo rose to fame from their hit drama serial Humsafar. Mahira later appeared in various feature films and in a Bollywood film Raees starring Shah Rukh Khan whereas Fawad was seen in Kapoor and Sons, Khoobsoorat and recently Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Post Uri and Pulwama attacks however, the situations between India and Pakistan have been strained and artists and features from neighboring countries have been banned in their respective industries. The Legend of Maula Jatt will be Fawad Khan’s first feature film in a very long time and it also stars Hamza Ali Abbasi, Humaima Malick, Gohar Rasheed and Faris Shafi. Mahira is also set to appear in Hum Films’ next project, Superstar opposite Bilal Ashraf.
