Pakistani actor Fawad Khan’s film ‘The Legend of Maula Jatt’ has been in the news for the past few days. This film is based on the 1979 film ‘Maula Jat’. Hamza Ali Abbasi, Humaima Malik and Mahira Khan also star. The film stars Fawad Khan as Maula Jatt, portrayed as a folk hero.
The film released worldwide in the month of October and the film has been doing well. It was to be released in India as well, but due to political opposition, the release of the film was postponed. This is how lead actor Fawad Khan has reacted to it.
Fawad Khan said in a recent interview that it will be great if this film is released in India. He said in an interview to CNN, “It will be great if the film is released in India. If that happens, it will be a good way for both countries to shake hands. It is like the sweets and wishes we send each other on Eid and Diwali. Film and music are a form of exchange. But still things are a bit heated between the two countries. The film may or may not release in India, let’s see what happens.”
The film was supposed to release in India but now its release has been postponed indefinitely. An official working at multiplex chain, Inox, told PTI, “We have been informed by the distributors that the release of the film has been postponed. We were told this two or three days ago. No further date has been shared with us.”
