The trailer of Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan-starrer The Legend of Maula Jatt, the Pakistani Punjabi-language action-drama, has landed.
The Pakistani magnum opus is a story of Maula Jatt, played by Fawad, who is a fierce prizefighter with a tortured past and seeks vengeance against his arch nemesis Noori Natt (played by actor Hamza Ali Abbasi), the most feared warrior in the land of Punjab. Mahira plays Fawad’s love interest, Mukhoo Jatti.
The film is a remake of the 1979 cult classic Maula Jatt. Other than Fawad and Mahira, the film also stars Hamza Ali Abbasi and Humaima Malik. Malik has been previously seen in the acclaimed Pakistani movie Bol, and the Bollywood film Raja Natwarlal alongside Emraan Hashmi.

The Legend of Maula Jatt is said to be the most expensive Pakistani film to date.
Talking about the film, Fawad told Variety in an earlier interview that it gives him immense pleasure and honour to play the role of the legendary Maula Jatt. “It was an absolute joy working with the team. I wish us all the very best of luck, and I hope the audience enjoys it as much as I enjoyed during the making,” he shared.
Talking about her experience, Mahira Khan had shared, “No matter what project I promote I’m asked about ‘The Legend Of Maula Jatt.’ This was a unique experience for me as an actor, learning to act in a language that I don’t know specifically was a challenge that I enjoyed. I believe that great things happen when hard work and patience are combined.”
The Legend of Maula Jatt is all set to hit cinema halls on October 13.
