the legend of maula jatt

Apart from its ensemble cast, the much-anticipated movie of 2019 ‘The Legend of Maula Jutt’ is also making headlines due to the controversy over violation of copyrights with the producer of Maula Jatt 1979, Sarwar Bhatti.

However, this controversy has taken a new turn after Imran Khan’s nephew, Barrister Hassaan Niazi took to Twitter, saying that only Sarwar Bhatti reserves the right over the movie and Bilal Lashari tried to take away his property by force.

He also posted the picture of the Certificate of Registration of Trade Mark from Government of Pakistan The Trade Marks Registry, dated 22/01/2018.

FIA Takes Action on Complaint of The Legend of Maula Jatt’s Producer

Hassaan Niazi also tagged Vasay Chaudhry in this Twitter post along with some other celebrities including Ali Zafar, Mawra Hocane, Faysal Quraishi and Fahad Mustafa.

Things heated up when Vasay Chaudhry, the writer, and actor of JPNA 2, asked Hassaan Niazi to refrain from tagging him in such posts that have nothing to do with him, following a chain of furious tweets from both sides.

Here’s what he responded!

After this reply from Vasay, Hassaan blamed him for not having the courage to speak the truth in fear of getting controversial, saying he should not behave like ‘deaf and dumb’!

This tweet from Hassaan Niazi further ignited the heat and Vasay Chaudhry tried to school him in his next tweet!

As ugly as it can be, Hassaan Niazi went a little personal with Vasay Chaudhry in this war of words and said that keeping a deaf ear to ‘copyright infringement’- money is after all the ‘goal of his life’!

Although the argument between the two ended here, let’s see if this story is going to take a twist!

Sarwar Bhatti, the CEO of Bahoo Corporation and the producer of Maula Jatt 1979, had challenged the making of The Legend of Maula Jatt claiming it to be the violation of his copyrights.

With its order issued on 07.08.2018, the IP tribunal Lahore made it clear that no violation of the copyright of Sarwar Bhatti has been done by Ammara Hikmat and Bilal Lashari, who jointly own the literary rights needed to produce The Legend of Maula Jatt. However, the only conflict in the copyrights was the usage of the title Maula Jatt alone but the addition of other words to the title doesn’t stop Bilal Lashari and Ammara Hikmat from using it.

FIA had summoned Sarwar Bhatti after a complaint was lodged against him by the Legend of Maula Jatt’s producer, Ammara Hikmat for committing online defamation through cyberstalking and incitement back in December 2018.

Later, Ammara Hikmat also sent Rs. 500 million legal notice to the CEO of Bahoo Corporation for defamation.
