There are news hovering relating Fawad Khan and Maula Jutt. The comes up as a confirmation to the fact that Fawad will be playing as Maula Jutt while Noori Nath will be played by the talent and outspoken Hamza Ali Abbasi. The movie is one of Bilal Lashari’s works.
Bilal had this to say,
“Noori is a really important character. In fact, in the original film, Mustafa Qureshi sahab, who played Noori, struck a stronger connection with the audience and it was also the first time people fell in love with a villain.”
Furthermore he said in response to that Hamza might be problematic for him “I think he will make an even better villain on screen than he is on Facebook. “I think he will bring that (his facebook persona) to the table itself but the character and dialogues themselves are so powerful that I think he is going to nail it. People will forget the old Noori Nath.”
Lashari is not content on making a remake but wants to do a film which depicts them. “It’s a gamble but it’s not a remake. “It’s a new interpretation of the gandasa genre, which is why it was very important to reinvent characters. There’s no point in imitating Sultan Rahi. There has to be a completely new identity.”
