Mahira Khan, on the other hand, dubbed the process of working in the film a learning experience. “No matter what project I promote I’m asked about The Legend of Maula Jatt,” she confessed. “This was a unique experience for me as an actor, learning to act in a language that I don’t specifically know was a challenge that I enjoyed.” Mahira concluded by noting that “great things happen when hard work and patience are combined.”
Furthermore, produced by Ammara Hikmat under the joint venture of Encyclomedia and Lashari films in association with AAA Motion Pictures, The Legend of Maula Jatt is lauded to be the most expensive Pakistani film to date.
