The much-awaited version of Maula Jatt starring Fawad Khan, Mahira Khan, Hamza Ali Abbasi and Humaima Malick is expected to be out soon. However, before it even gets a release date, it seems the team behind the film is already rooting for it to hit the 100 Crore mark.
In a recent interview with a renowned blog, writer of the upcoming film Nasir Adeeb claimed that he has already â€˜informedâ€™ the director, Bilal Lashari, that if his film doesnâ€™t touch 100-crore mark, itâ€™s a flop.
Although the film is yet to release even a teaser, it seems Nasir Adeeb is heavily confident on his penmanship. He also mentioned how thereâ€™s a difference between the 1979 original and the upcoming version.
â€œThe difference between the first Maula Jatt and the upcoming film is same as the one between an evening of 1979 and a morning of 2018,â€ he said. â€œThose who watched the film in 1979 and have now stopped watching films will definitely watch this one to see what the new team has done with it.â€
The writer also mentioned that there is a huge difference between the audiences of then and now.
â€œThose who watched the 1979 film, their children will be watching the upcoming Maula Jatt,â€ he added. â€œThey think rationally and logically and donâ€™t approve of anything that doesnâ€™t make sense. This is the difference between the stories of the two films.â€
Will the film have that Midas touch and be the first film to reach the 100-Crore-Club in Pakistan? Weâ€™ll have to wait and seeâ€¦
