Previously, Fawad Khan spoke about the film. He said:

Maula Jatt always had a cult status in Pakistani media, and because of that, we’d obviously heard of it, and who had not heard of the dialogue.”

When Bilal approached Fawad, it was with the idea of a remake and that is when the actor watched the original.

“The actors who made that film what it was – Sultan Rahi and Mustafa Qureshi – were very big veterans of the industry.

“To take their acting as an influence for modern cinema may have been a bit out of context, and all respect to them, but we felt that these were very big shoes to fill, and therefore maybe we should attempt something.”
