The Legend of Maula Jatt is going to hit the cinemas soon, and amidst all the promotion, the makers have now announced their contribution to flood relief. All the ticket sales revenue from the first-day shows will be donated to the flood victims.
“This would be our small contribution to the ongoing catastrophe in the country. We had decided to share our preview shows earnings with the flood relief fund,” Ammara Hikmat, the producer of the film, shared with Express Tribune.
She also shared the reason behind another delay in the film’s release, where the producer felt it didn’t sit right with them to go all out with the promotions in the midst of a national crisis. “We had been planning the release for months. But with the ongoing situation of the country, we delayed our promotions as well. It just didn’t feel right. We pushed all interviews to the last 2 weeks of release and will leave the rest for the audience to decide,” she said.
