One of the most anticipated films set to be released next year is facing quite some trouble already.
According to several news channels, the four leading stars of Bilal Lashari’s remake/sequel of Maula Jatt, Fawad Khan, Mahira Khan, Hamza Ali Abbasi and Humaima Malik reportedly received court orders from the producers of the original Maula Jatt.
According to the news outlets, MJ’s producer Sarwar Bhatti claimed that the sequel producers can’t use the name of the movie, music and characters without getting prior approval from him. The court orders were sent to warn the actors from participating in the film.
Ammara Hikmat, producer of the new Maula Jatt 2 has told media: “The malicious claims made by Sarwar Bhatti are false and frivolous. Instead of commenting on this issue through the media, we will take appropriate legal action in this respect,” she responded.
We are waiting to see how this controversy is resolved in the near future.
