You won’t be seeing a ‘Maula Jatt’ teaser ever, says Bilal Lashari

Maula Jatt, expected to be the biggest film of the year – and we have reason to believe that it will release this year – is in production phase these days and any squeak of information and insight to it makes headlines. The cast is headline enough; you have Fawad Khan as Maula with Mahira Khan as Mukhu, Hamza Ali Abbasi as Noori Natt and Humaima Malick as Daro alongwith an enviable ensemble cast. With Bilal Lashari directing the project and Ammara Hikmat holding the film together as producer, rest assure that no expense has been spared to ensure MJ is a world class production.

But you won’t be seeing its teaser, ever.

In a brief conversation with Bilal Lashari at Sadaf Fawad Khan’s birthday, the director revealed that they would not be releasing a teaser for Maula Jatt, as was being anticipated. We had earlier heard that the first look/teaser would make an appearance in summer.

“There is a sense of mystique associated with Maula Jatt,” the director said. “It’s been in production for a couple of years and there’s a sense of mystery that shrouds it. We’d like to keep it that way until the release is around the corner. We’ll directly release the trailer.”

 

The Maula Jutt team: Fawad Khan, Mahira Khan, Ammara Khan, Asad Khan, Zara Shahjahan, Gohar Rasheed, Faris Shafi, Sameer, Bilal Lakhani, Sadaf Fawad Khan and Hassaan Khalid, amongst others. Hamza Ali Abbasi and Humaima Malick were missed in this picture!

 

It’s a good strategy, even if it means that the first look of the film, or of any of the stars in character, is off the radar for a little more time. Teaser or not, this will be one trailer to look out for!
