Filmmaker Bilal Lashari’s much-awaited magnum opus The Legend of Maula Jatt finally has a release date. The Mahira Khan and Fawad Khan-starrer will hit cinemas on October 13, as per a press release. And a new poster for the flick has also been unveiled.

So to mark the moment, Fawad Khan has told Variety, “It has been an honour to play the role of the legendry Maula Jatt. It was an absolute joy working with the team. I wish all of us the very best of luck to all and hope the audience enjoys watching the film as much as I enjoyed its making.”

Mahira Khan, on the other hand, dubbed the process of working in the film a learning experience. “No matter what project I promote I’m asked about The Legend of Maula Jatt,” she confessed. “This was a unique experience for me as an actor, learning to act in a language that I don’t specifically know was a challenge that I enjoyed.” Mahira concluded by noting that “great things happen when hard work and patience are combined.”

Produced by Ammara Hikmat under the joint venture of Encyclomedia and Lashari films in association with AAA Motion Pictures, The Legend of Maula Jatt is touted to be the most expensive Pakistani film to date. A reboot of Yunus Malik’s 1979 cult classic, the Punjabi-language film that focuses on the legendary rivalry between Maula and Noori – the leader of a brutal gang – is set to feature the country’s crème de la crème.

It will see Fawad as Maula Jatt opposite Mahira, who will play his love interest Mukkho Jatti, alongside Hamza Ali Abbasi as Noori Natt, Humaima Malik as Daro, Faris Shafi as Mooda and Gohar Rasheed as Makha.

After announcing the release date following almost a decade, Bilal told the outlet, “A ten-year journey of creating an impossible film will conclude this October in a cinema near you.” Ammara added: “I hope this film proves to be one of those history-defining moments for South Asian cinema that it deserves.”

Mahira, Frieha among others condemn Sara Bibi’s brutal murder

Senior journalist Ayaz Amir’s daughter-in-law, Sara Bibi, was allegedly murdered in Islamabad’s Chak Shehzad suburb, police said on Friday. The 37-year-old was living at a farmhouse in the area where she was found dead Friday morning. Reportedly, she was murdered with a dumbbell and her husband, Shah Nawaz, is the prime suspect in the case.

The news shook celebrities and Twitter to the core, where many expressed shock and anger. “How long before we get any sort of justice for any woman who has been killed at the hands of rage and privilege. Another hashtag. Another long wait for justice. Justice delayed is justice denied,” Mahira Khan tweeted. 

“No country for women!” PR mogul Frieha Altaf wrote. “Another daughter-in-law, another Noor. The cases that are high profile make it to Twitter trends. The 12-year-old raped/hung just gets a column on page 5 and yet the horror of domestic abuse, misogynistic behaviour and harassment doesn’t stop.”

Zunaira Inam Khan commented, “Another day, another woman lost to senseless violence. Such a terrible shame. When will be able to stop having to change the name at the end of the “justice for…” hashtag? Also, please stop sharing the pictures of the murder victim. Let her have dignity in death.”

Twitter users, too, condemned Sara’s brutal murder. 

Police and investigation teams reached the crime scene and the journalist’s son was arrested after earlier fleeing from the crime scene. However, the police have said that the FIR will be registered after an investigation has been conducted. “The incident is being investigated,” a police spokesperson said while reserving further comments.

Emraan Hashmi can’t wait for Humaima Malick’s performance as Daro

Actor Humaima Malick recently shared her fiery look from the upcoming Fawad Khan-starrer, The Legend of Maula Jatt, scheduled for release on October 13, 2022.

The Bol star can be seen clad in black shalwar kameez, with a red dupatta draped over her shoulder and dark kohl eyes. Her bold look is accentuated by the knife in her hand. Humaima garnered massive praise for her unique look in the Bilal Lashari directorial. And from of course across the border too!

Indian actor Emraan Hashmi, who has previously worked with the star in the 2014 Bollywood film Raja Natwarlal, praised her look on Instagram. “Love the look Humaima. Looking forward to your stellar performance,” he commented on her post, alongside a thumbs-up emoji.

Earlier, Mahira Khan, who also stars in The Legend of Maula Jatt, received ample love for the film’s poster she revealed of herself on Instagram. The likes of Asim Raza, Sohai Ali Abro, Sanam Saeed, Sanam Jung, Ayesha Omar, Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, Nabeel Qureshi and Imran Abbas among others took to social media and commented on her post.  

However, there was one comment that caught everyone’s attention and it was from Bollywood heartthrob Hrithik Roshan. The War star took to Mahira’s Instagram post and penned, “Love this.”

Humaima has long faced criticism regarding her choice of agreeing to bold characters and intimate scenes, particularly referring to her Bollywood stint. Addressing the hatred earlier, she said, “I made myself strong with the thought that ‘talent has no religion’. It was just a role.” While the Akbari Asghari star understands how kissing on-screen hurt her fans’ sentiments, she does not appreciate the harsh comments hurled at her for essaying the role of a bar dancer in Raja Natwarlal. 

“There was a lot of hatred for me when I performed the role of a bar dancer. I did a lot of hard work to play this role as this culture is not there in Pakistan. My director took me to various bars and I observed the body language of those dancers. It’s a very tough job they are doing and I have immense respect for them,” she said, explaining the efforts that went behind the role.

Ahsan on artists being criticised for ‘not helping flood victims’

Published

Actor Ahsan Khan has something to say about the ongoing criticism on actors flying out of the country for an award show in time of a national emergency. 

“It goes without saying that all efforts in personal and professional capacity have been ongoing and shall continue towards the flood relief drive. A percentage of my hosting here will also go towards the same flood relief,” the Udaari star shared in a statement. 

He added, “However, I want to clearly state that we need to understand and start treating people’s professions with the same respect that is bestowed upon other industries. We aren’t questioning why a textile person or any other segment is going to work during the tragic situation in our country, yet actors are being asked why they are attending the event. Think about that for a second. Don’t judge a book by its cover.”

Previously, several artists including Ushna Shah addressed the matter. “It’s quite disconcerting to read the criticism for those of us who have come to Toronto to attend the award show. It is imperative that those affected by the floods know that they are not forgotten and we are working on the channels to raise funds through our industry,” the Habs actor wrote in a descriptive note. 

She added, “I can speak for myself and I am sure many other artists when I say that we have contributed to the relief funds (privately) and continue to do so. We are also partaking in auctions and fundraisers here for the victims, tickets for which have been sold out. We are trying to do our best we can with the platforms we have. I look forward to returning to Pakistan and to continue my part, as the rehabilitation of our fellow citizens after their horrific disaster is our collective responsibility.”
