Fawad’s Pakistani blockbuster The Legend of Maula Jatt has been stuck in development hell for as long as fans can remember. There were rumours of a 40-crore Netflix deal but movie’s director, writer, cinematographer & editor, Bilal Lashari rubbished them, saying only a theatrical release will do justice to Pakistan’s most expensive movie ever.

Originally slated for 2019 release, it was delayed to 2020, then 2021. Even this year, it has zero chance of release

While Ms. Marvel is still many months away (coming to Disney+ in late 2021), Fawad Khan’s fans, grown weary of waiting for The Legend of Maula Jatt finally have something to look forward to.
