The release of the film in Punjab and Delhi-NCR is yet to be considered. It is a Punjabi film, due to which it is expected to release in the northern belt. However, a clear decision is yet to come on this as protests in India are rife regarding this film. The Legend of Maula Jatt has earned more than five crore rupees in Pakistan so far.

This is the reason why the release date was extended from 23rd December to 30th December. It is believed that till the release of Pathan, the film ‘The Legend of Maula Jatt’ can do well in theatres.The film is said to be a remake of the 1979 Pakistani classic film Maula Jatt.
