Trailer of the hugely awaited The Legend Of Maula Jatt dropped last year on superstar Mahira Khan’s birthday i.e. 21s December. The trailer received a remarkable response becoming the only Pakistani trailer to hit 10 million views on social media.
We saw the dapper Hamza Ali Abbasi in the vicious avatar of Noori Natt and the heartthrob Fawad Khan as the deadly Maula Jatt. Everyone is looking forward to the face off between Fawad Khan and Hamza Ali Abbasi. The film is slated for release on Eid and fans are immensely excited to see the fight sequence between Maula and Noori.
The charming Fawad Khan aka Maula Jatt has not given us any major blockbusters recently but his debut film Khuda Kay Liye still holds many records. Film ran consecutively for 36 Weeks, making it the second longest running film in the history of Pakistani Cinema.
The star also enjoyed a mega opening with Indian film Kapoor & Sons. Kapoor & Sons had a core multiplex audience and yet it manged an opening day of 1.3cr approx back in 2016. Film’s opening was among top 10 highest opening days for Hindi films back then.
Even though Maula Jatt i.e. Fawad Khan’s boxoffice track record is great but Noori Natt’s record is even better. The combined business of Hamza Ali Abbasi’s films has done over 100 crores at the boxoffice in Pakistan. His film Parwaaz Hai Junoon is running consecutively for the 25th Week. His film Jawani Phir Nahi Ani is still the 5th highest grosser here. He is the only star other than Humayun Saeed who has given three 20+crore films.
According to Boxoffice Stats Noori Natt beats Maula Jatt. It will interesting to see who wins the battle in the film! In addition, Noori Nath will undoubtedly be the best villian to come out of Pakistani Cinema while Maula Jatt also comes across as a force to be reckoned with.
