Yasir Nawaz’s rib tickling comedy flick, Wrong No 2 is all set to clash with Bilal Lashari’s film, The Legend of Maula Jatt. The latter has a star studded cast including big names such as Fawad Khan, Hamza Ali Abbasi and Mahira Khan. Whereas the first is a sequel of a super hit comedy film Wrong No that released in 2015. Wrong No 2 stars Sami Khan and Neelum Munir in the lead.
This wont be the first time, the brave director Yasir Nawaz is clashing with an ambitious project. Previously Yasir Nawaz released Wrong No 2 alongside Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Baijan in 2015. Yasir Nawaz’s film emerged as a super hit with a Boxoffice collection of about 14 Cr.
After clashing with Salman Khan himself, the makers then released Mehrunisa V Lub U in 2017. This film clashed with another anticipated project, “Yalghaar”. The Shaan Shahid starrer came from the makers of “Waar” and was looking to cash on Waar’s established and acclaimed name. Mehrunisa V Lub U still managed to rake in about 11.5 Cr despite such a vicious clash! The film performed very decently in front of a Shaan Shahid starrer.
Yasir Nawaz has proved time and again that it does not matter which film one clashes with, as long as the content of the film is good, any film can withstand any clash, then be it with Salman Khan or Maula Jatt!
The ambitious producers Hassan Zia and Amjad Rasheed alongside director Yasir Nawaz will now be clashing with The Legend of Maula Jatt. The Bilal Lashari film is an action film and action films tend to have an initial audience in circuits! Whereas Wrong No 2 is a comedy and comedy films also have a pull in mass circuits! However Wrong No 2 has an edge as comedy films tend to draw in a substantial audience in Karachi.Their previous comedy flick, Mehrunisa V Lub U managed to do well in Karachi too.
While The Legend of Maula Jatt may not have this edge, in the end it depends on how much Wrong No 2 cashes upon its advantage and how good the content of the film is!
Both the films will be competing based on their content and by looking at Yasir Nawaz’s previous performance, we can say that Wrong No 2 definitely has a good chance at competing well with The Legend of Maula Jatt!
The film will be released by IMGC in Pakistan on Eid ul Fitr!
