Remake of blockbuster Maula Jatt 2



The making of movie’s series is the job of Bollywood and Hollywood and they have made numerous series. Some depicted from very old times like hit Don Series. But it seems daunting when we talk about the remaking of Pakistani movies. While there are many old movies which were super hit of their times but now the style of Pakistani film industry has been changed and it is difficult to find out any movie for remaking and remaking of a Punjabi movie in this modern era is a thinkable task.

The eminent Pakistani director Bilal Lashari, who has given the hit Pakistani movie Waar, has decided to remake a Pakistani movie. Yes, the movie is none other than Punjabi hit Maula Jatt. Bilal was telling in an interview that the concept of Punjabi Hero in our movies is that someone who has strong physical structure is fit to be a hero.

He has already decided the cast of Maula Jatt 2 and in this super fictional venture, the two heartthrobs of Pakistan will be seen. One is the Khubsurat Fawad Khan, he will perform the role of Maula Jutt, and the other is Hamza ali Abbasi, who will perform the negative role of Noori Nath.

Bilal revealed in an interview that “It has to be a lot more than just physical exaggeration and that is why Fawad as Maula Jatt and Hamza as Noori Nath will come as an amazing shocker for the audience.”

Bilal Lashari was also sharing about the storyline of the blockbuster Maula jutt 2, “It’s a gamble but it’s not a remake, the movie has a completely different story.”

It seems that Bilal is a big fan of Gandasa culture as he told “This will be my take on Gandasa films which are blamed for the death of Lollywood. I think the Gandasa genre was a missed opportunity for Pakistani cinema, and what better choice to utilize it than by paying homage to the cult classic Maula Jatt.”

Previously it was scheduled that the movie will release in 2017 but the final date is not confirmed yet.

Facebook page has revealed the other cast of the movie of Maula Jatt 2 and it includes Fawad Khan, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Sanam Jung, Shamoon Abbasi and Adnan Jaffar as the main roles.

The story is written by Nasir Adib and director of movie Bilal Lashari. The movie will be co-produced by an American production house.
