Before Khuda Ke Liye and Waar, films like Maula Jatt marked the industry's resounding success.

With the industry now booming with digital technology, the producer of Maula Jatt, Muhammad Sarwar Bhatti, has decided to bring the 1979 masterpiece back to the silver screen in Blu-ray and 3D technology for old fans and the new generation to enjoy.

"The film is in the process of being remastered in London and the conversion will cost us Rs4.5 million," Bhatti told Dawn.

With the number of films releasing with enhanced digital technology, Bhatti is hopeful fans will love the film's remaster.

"We have just started our Facebook page and are receiving positive response from fans. We have high hopes that the film will be loved by all," said Bhatti.

There is no confirmed release date at the moment. However, Bhatti said they will have the final version of the trailer ready to be released in the next six to eight weeks.

Directed by Younis Malik, Maula Jatt depicts the enmity between two men, Maula Jatt (played by Lollywood legend Sultan Rahi) and Noori Natt (Mustafa Qureshi), with Gujranwala in rural Punjab as the setting.

The action film was banned for a short time by the government when it was first released. However, it dominated Pakistani cinema in the 1980s.
