Ali Zafar lauded Bilal Lashari’s The Legend of Maula Jatt and declared his desire for the “magnum opus” to become the first Pakistani film to break the “100 crore” mark.
The Teefa in Trouble actor commended the director of Waar’s ten-year devotion for taking so much time to create the masterpiece.
According to Zafar, the film starring Fawad Khan and Hamza Ali Abbasi is “that movie,” and that every few years a film arises that smashes the limits.
I can appreciate the difficulties everyone must have faced in order to complete this big work, and they have done it remarkably efficiently, he said. It’s been humbling to produce a film myself.
Lashari, according to the actor-singer, is a “genuine artist” who deserves more than a few good words or articles of admiration and even unprecedented box office figures.
Investing 10 years of his life required a considerable amount of commitment, patience, and so much more that only he and his family would know, Zafar said.
Having seen some of his work, I believe he is a true artist who deserves to be celebrated, credited, and awarded the highest honours available, he concluded. The entire crew is on the same page.
Making a movie needs collaboration, and it is rather difficult to achieve the level of attention to detail that one witnesses in all disciplines, therefore it demands study and respect.
The artist went on to say that TLoMJ can and should become Pakistan’s first 100 crore film, and that it can open countless doors for everyone in the film business.
Before coming to a conclusion, Zafar remarked that the film should collect all the support and admiration from all corners.
