With a little over a month to go until the premier of the film, promotions for Bilal Lashari’s much anticipated mega-budget movie, The Legend of Maula Jatt have officially started.
During promotion, main leads Fawad Khan – who is playing ‘Maula Jatt’ – and Hamza Ali Abbasi – who is playing ‘Noori Nath’ – can be seen sitting down in with each other talking about the movie.
Hamza and Fawad are seen sitting in their comfortable yet elegant kurta shalwars sharing a light moment. Hamza was seen laughing at something while Fawad looks over amused.
The Pyarey Afzal actor, also took to his Instagram to promote the movie. In the post – which he later removed from his account – the actor was wearing a personalized The Legend of Maula Jatt t-shirt and posing with two axes as he sat down with YouTuber Ukhano.
Two pictures of Hamza Ali Abbasi posing with the axes were shared. In one, he holds both the axes in front of him in a cross while in the other, he places both the axes on each of his shoulders in true Noori Nath style.
