Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb on Wednesday expressed her delight over the unprecedented success of Lollywood film “The Legend of Maula Jat” in Pakistan and abroad.
In a tweet she said she was “delighted with the unprecedented success of ‘The Legend of Maula Jatt’ in Pakistan and abroad”.
The minister said the monumental success of the film was a testament to Pakistan’s film making talent.
The minister said the government was supporting Pakistani filmmakers to reach their potential. She urged everyone in the Pakistan film industry to play their part in the revival of local cinema.
The Legend of Maula Jatt is by far the most expensive film to come out of Pakistan. This intense and epic hero origin story, with a screenplay by Bilal Lashari and dialogues by Nasir Adeeb, is a hard reboot of the 1979 cult classic ‘Maula Jatt’. The film is directed by Bilal Lashari, known for his directorial debut, the box office megahit film ‘Waar’ and produced by Ammara Hikmat under the joint venture of Encyclomedia & Lashari films in association with AAA Motion Pictures.
The filmmakers have partnered with GeoFilms as their presenting media partner and it will be locally distributed by Nadeem Mandviwalla of Mandviwalla Entertainment, who is well known for his contribution to cinema. Internationally the film will be distributed by MovieGoers Entertainment.
