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.
