FAB Entertainment, in partnership with Qatar Tourism, announced the premiere of the movie, The Legend of Maula Jatt in Doha this Thursday, 13 October.

The Legend of Maula Jatt is the most anticipated release of the season as it has been in the making for nearly half a decade. Boasting a stellar cast featuring superstars Fawad Khan, Mahira Khan, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Humaima Malik, Gohar Rasheed and Faris Shafi, this magnum opus promises to thrill all visual senses, an absolute treat for action movie fans.

Cult classic

The film is a reboot of the Punjabi cult classic, Maula Jatt, which was released in 1979 and ran in local cinemas for a number of years. Directed by Bilal Lashari and produced by Ammara Hikmat, the movie is Lashari’s take on the Gandassa genre set in provincial Punjab in Pakistan.

The film tells the story of Maula Jatt (Fawad Khan), a heroic, prized warrior who has a fierce face-off with his arch nemesis, Noori Natt (Hamza Ali Abbasi), in an epic battle of revenge for honour and glory. Mahira Khan plays the female lead as Mukkho Jatti with Humaima Malik as Daaro Nattni.

According to FAB Entertainment CEO Fauzia Vohra, the much-awaited action-packed drama will see superstars Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan come together again on screen after Hum Safar, nearly a decade ago.

Vohra said the trailer already garnered over 60 million views around the world.

We look forward to welcoming the cast and crew to Doha, in partnership with Qatar Tourism, and hope they enjoy Qatar’s sights and sounds and warm hospitality. There is no time like show time and we look forward to seeing you at the movies!

On Qatar’s role in hosting the premier, Qatar Tourism Chief Operating Officer, Berthold Trenkel said that hosting the global release and premiere of the much-anticipated film in Qatar is a reflection of the country’s growth as a global destination for arts, culture and entertainment.

The premiere is at the Novo Cinemas, Mall of Qatar, this Thursday, 13 October. Public showing also starts this Thursday. Tickets are available at q-tickets.com
