‘The Best Thing to Happen to Pakistan After the 92 Worldcup’: Yasir Hussain on The Legend of Maula Jatt

Yasir Hussain wrote a heartfelt note for the movie.

It has barely been a week since the theatrical release of The Legend of Maula Jatt and it’s already a blockbuster hit. It is loved by many and people are singing praises for the newly-released movie. Not only fans, but the entire industry is swooning over the actors for delivering a masterpiece. Amid all the commendations, Yasir Hussain decided to write a heartfelt note for the movie.

He said,

From Nasir Adeeb sahab’s writing to Bilal Lashari’s direction and Ammara Hikmat’s production, everything is great. The entire time you won’t feel like getting out of your seat or even checking the mobile phone. Babar Ali and Resham’s screen presence was unreal, Ali Azmat and Faris Shafi, best supporting cast, he wrote.

He further lauded the cast, including Mirza Gohar Rasheed, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Humaima Malick, Nayyer Ijaz, and Shafqat Cheema for their performances.

The actor continued,

Fear was accompanied by hatred and special shoutout for Mahira Khan because only she can be the heroine to Maula. Lastly comes Fawad Khan whom I loved as Maula. As a theatre actor I can easily say that Maula was the most difficult character of the movie. Firstly the character has so many shades and secondly after Sultan Rahi sahab it was almost impossible to accept anyone else as a Maula. But from today on Fawad Khan is our Maula Jatt, and that’s the winning point for the film.

Yasir Hussain also urged the nation to watch the movie. The film was released worldwide on over 500 screens across 25 countries. On Tuesday, Maula Jatt was number one at the UAE Box Office, and at number six in Canada, and number eight in Australia. In its opening weekend, the big budget film collected Rs. 509 million ($2.3 million).
