Fawad Khan Views About Movie

Fawad Khan

According to Khan, who was speaking to Variety. Khan saw the original film for the first time when Lashari contacted him with the notion of a remake. Khan explains that Mustafa Qureshi and Sultan Rahi, two extremely experienced actors, made the movie what it was.

“We felt that these were pretty huge shoes to fill, so perhaps we should attempt something. However, we believed that to take their performance as an example for current movies may have been a bit out of context.”

Finally, The Legend of Maula Jatt was intended to be a reboot as opposed to a remake. Although the team choose a naturalistic body type for the actor based on the South Asian wrestling style Pehlwani, Khan’s character as a prizefighter required a lot of athleticism. Some of them resemble sumo wrestlers, not quite Michelangelo’s sculptures of Greek gods, claims Khan.

“We decided to go ahead and build a version that isn’t quite as glamorous by today’s standards and make something that’s more out there, thus weight gain entered the picture

Khan’s Working Experience With Co-Star

I hate conflict and try to stay away from it at all costs. I, too, dislike controversy, says Khan. “Instead of me working with others fearing they will be blamed, I believe the question should be whether they would prefer to work with me. I’ll finish my work and leave, but those who wish to work with me will have to put up with the consequences. And I’m concerned about that because they’ll have to live there and deal with the repercussions.

Similar to this, if I worked in India and returned to Pakistan, I would have to deal with the repercussions of what the people thought about it, said Khan. But aside from that, I get along well with everyone I’ve worked with and have made wonderful friends. One day I want to see them again and perhaps work with them once more. Regardless of whether it’s for an Indian platform, a Pakistani platform, or an international one. Bollywood movies industry is a whole different animal.
