Maula Jutt 2 set to release on Eid-ul-fiter 2020
After much speculation, Maula Jutt 2 is set to release this Eid-ul-Fiter. The movie has a stellar cast of leading Pakistani actors, Fawad Khan, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Mahira Khan and Humaima Malik.
The project has been in pipeline for more than two years. The trailer was shared for the first time on 21st December, 2018 and it got a great response from the audience. However, the release of the film kept delaying due to the legal battle over the copyrights of the movie. The producers were sued by Bahoo Films Production for using the title Maula Jutt as they alleged that they had not permitted the same. Muttaqi Sarwar, son of Ahmed Sarwar who had produced the 1979 hit film, claimed that the remake was being made illegally in violation of the intellectual property rights.
Bilal lashari and Ammara Hikmat, the producers of Maula Jutt 2 who had been engaged in a two year long legal battle were finally freed when Sarwar withdrew all of the pending cases in February 2020. Muttaqi denied the rumors of any financial settlement between him and the other party and apprised that he took this decision for betterment of the local cinema.
Ammara Hikmat, shared the news on her Instagram in a light-hearted way with the caption “Answer to the question I have been asked more than the meals I have had since I was born! In cinemas this Eid-ul-fiter (pakka)”.
Bilal Lashari stated that this film is his take on the Gandasa movies which were considered to be the death of local cinema. The movie is highly anticipated due to its ensemble cast and even more because of comeback of the superstar, Fawad khan, after a period of almost two years. We look forward to the release of this flick to see how the modern perspective on a Gandasa movie looks like!
