Yasir Hussain lauds cast, crew of Maula Jatt. Says it’s the best thing to happen to Pakistan after 92 World Cup


It’s official (our celebrities love) The Legend of Maula Jatt. After adnan Siddiqui, Amar Khan and other stars, Yasir Hussain is the latest to commend Bilal Lashari and Ammara Hikmat’s the Legend of Maula Jatt. The Badshah Begum actor called it “the best thing that happened to Pakistan” since the 92 World Cup.
Taking to Instagram on Thursday, Hussain wrote, “From Nasir Adeeb sahab’s writing to Bilal Lashari’s direction and Ammara Hikmat’s production, everything is great. The entire time you won’t feel like getting out of your seat or even checking the mobile phone. Babar Ali and Resham’s screen presence was unreal, Ali Azmat and Faris Shafi, best cast.”
Then came his praises for the main cast as he began complimenting the Natts (Mirza Gohar Rasheed, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Humaima Malick, Nayyer Ijaz and Shafqat Cheema) for their performances.
“Fear was accompanied by hatred and special shoutout for Mahira Khan because only she can be the heroin[e] to Maula. Lastly comes Fawad Khan whom I loved as Maula. As a theatre actor I can easily say that Maula was the most difficult character of the movie. Firstly the character has so many shades and secondly after Sultan Rahi sahab it was almost impossible to accept anyone else as a Maula. But from today on Fawad Khan is our Maula Jatt, and that’s the winning point for the film,” he wrote.
Hussain also pointed out that if a mistake was to be pointed out about The Legend of Maula Jatt it would be all cinemas didn’t screen it. “This film does not need anyone’s support instead the cinema-goers need to see the film,” he concluded.
The film released worldwide on over 500 screens across 25 countries. On Tuesday Maula Jatt was number one at the UAE Box Office, six in Canada and eight in Australia. In its opening weekend, the big budget film collected Rs509 million (US$2.3 million).
