akistani blockbuster The Legend of Maula Jatt will likely not get a theatrical release in India after a spokesperson for cinema chain INOX confirmed that the film’s release has been delayed indefinitely, Indian Express has reported.

The Pakistani action film was set to release in theaters across India on December 30. However, the decision to release the film met with intense criticism by Indian politicians including the president of the cinema wing of the MNS Ameya Khopkar who wrote on Twitter that Fawad Khan’s fans might just have go to Pakistan to watch the film.

In another tweet, Khopkar said he will not allow Maula Jatt to be released anywhere in India.


The last Pakistani film to release in India was Bol in 2011, which also featured Humaima Malick and Mahira Khan, both of whom star in Maula Jatt too.
