According to Ahsan Masood Sarwar Bhatti’s lawyer in an EPK exclusive conversation:
Our case was convened under Justice Ameen Ud Din Khan. Honorable bench held out the proceeding in presence of the lawyers of The Legend Of Maula Jatt. It was declared that we have been granted stay order. They cannot use the name unauthorized and illegally. In our stay application we had requested that they should be stopped from using the title, title resembling Maula Jatt,its dialogues, its characters, songs or even background music nothing can be used by them.
We had further requested the court that the censor certificate received under the title of “The Legend of Maula Jatt” , they should not be allowed to further proceed with it.The opposing party lawyer initially didn’t appear in court, when the judge was going to declare that they are not appearing in court their counsel came forward and requested some time, however court granted us stay.
