Fawad Khan, Hamza Ali Abbasi go super fit for Maula Jatt

Published: January 9, 2017


LAHORE: After overcoming innumerable hurdles, Bilal Lashari’s Maula Jatt is finally seeing the light of the day.

The film, announced as a multi-million dollar remake of Sultan Rahi’s Maula Jatt in December 2013, will hit the floors very soon. Sources told The Express Tribune that a team of action choreographers from Los Angeles had arrived in Lahore to train Maula Jatt‘s lead actors for the gruelling task that lies ahead. “The team has been in Lahore for a couple of weeks where workshops are being conducted for the cast and the crew,” a source privy to the details said.

“Both Fawad and Hamza will train for their particular roles. The first spell focusses on Hamza specifically.” The source further elaborated that the LA team was here to stay and would return once the film’s shooting had been completed.

Earlier, it was reported that Hamza and Fawad had left for LA to begin their physical transformations. “It has to be a lot more than just a physical transformation. Fawad as Maula Jatt and Hamza as Noori Nath will come as an amazing shocker for the audience,” Lashari had said in an interview.

The director has repeatedly said that fans must not consider his film a remake as a lot of the original film’s nuances had been changed in keeping with contemporary demands.

    Just for the sake of info, Fawad didn’t sign this movie after his Bollywood carrier hit rock bottoms owe to the current tensions. He signed the movie more than a year ago. In fact 6 months back he signed another Pakistani movie called Albela Rahi which is a biopic on Alamgir the singer.Recommend
