‘Maalik’, directed under the banner of actor Ashir Azeem, starring Farhan Ali Agha, Sajid Hassan, Hassan Niazi, Tatmain Ul Qulb and Adnan Shah Tipu will now hit the screen on April 8, instead on March 23, whereas the official trailer will be out on March 1.
Ashir while revealing about the release and post-production of the movie on his Facebook account said, “I will not go to Bangkok or Dubai or India. I will do everything in Pakistan and prove that we are second to none. I take pride that my film is ‘Made in Pakistan.”

While talking to The Express Tribune, the actor said that producing this movie in Pakistan is exactly like “Chinese launching rockets into space.”
“For me, it’s a matter of pride. When the Chinese made rockets, everything, from their programming to the buttons on the pilot’s suit, was made in China.”

Meanwhile, Ashir mentioned that the change in release dates is taking place because of World T20 in India.
Azeem also mentioned that the color correction in Pakistan and in abroad is the same. Giving the examples of the Pakistani movies, Jawani Phir Nahi Aani (JPNA), Ho Mann Jahaan and Moor, he said that all three are no less than any international movie.
Music composer Sahir Ali Bagga, on the other hand, has taken charge for the music release. “As of now we know that Rahat [Fateh Ali Khan] will be singing a song. It is possible that he may sing more but that depends on the nature of the tracks,” said Azeem.
