A group of Iranian tourists visiting Lahore’s historical landmarks is particularly interested in the Punjabi film classic The Legend of Maula Jatt. A group of Iranian officials, including Sayyed Izzat Ullah Zarghami, the Federal Minister for Cultural Heritage, Museums, and Tourism, and Iranian Consul General Mehran Movahhedfar and DG Lahore Iranian Cultural Center Jafar Ronas, visited the Lahore Fort, Badshahi Mosque, and Mazar-e-Iqbal, among other places.

After learning about Pakistani history and culture, the delegation’s interest in the classic film The Legend of Maula Jatt became clear. The delegates were so taken with the film that they discussed having it dubbed into Persian for theatrical distribution in Iran.

Yahya Saleem, the brains of Universal Cinemas, was kind enough to set up a private showing for this unique cinematic experience. The Iranian visitors were so impressed by the film’s stellar acting that they publicly expressed hope that it would be widely shown in Iran.

This act of mutual appreciation and cross-cultural understanding exemplifies the way in which art may bridge cultural divides, unite people from different countries, and resound with readers from all walks of life. The Legend of Maula Jatt’s possible release in Iranian theaters would be a major step in the film industry’s partnership with Iran and the subcontinent, further solidifying the cultural links between the two countries.

The film, which stars Fawad Khan, Hamza Ali Abbasi, and Mahira Khan, has already won several awards. The critically acclaimed picture, which debuted on October 13 of last year, was hailed as the “greatest Pakistani film ever made.” Ammara Hikmat, the film’s producer, recently shared the news that the movie had earned more than Rs 400 crore around the world. The producer boasted on Instagram that her masterpiece is still raking in the dough at the box office.
