Days after the release date for the highly-anticipated The Legend of Maula Jatt was announced, excited movie-goers were treated to another surprise - the first theatrical trailer for the Mahira Khan and Fawad Khan-starrer!

Everyone was glued to their seats as the two-and-a-half minute-long video presented moments from the forthcoming film in an enticing, enchanting, and beautifully put together way.

Of course, the trailer of the long-awaited film has caught the attention of many, including Indian filmmaker and actor Anurag Kashyap.

''Finally! Trailer of the film I've loved so much and the film you really want to see is out!'' the gangs of Wasseypur director tweeted along with YouTube link to the trailer.

Glimpses of the film that also features Hamza Ali Abbasi, Humaima Malick, and Mirza Gohar Rasheed, have left social media users in a frenzy. One users called it the ''Punjabi Game of Thrones,'' while another said they've never seen a trailer better than this one.

Film critic Joginder Tuetaja tweeted. ''This is as huge as it gets! Imagine, the action drama was made before K.G.F! This can become one of the biggest blockbusters ever! Fawad Khan, Mahira Khan, Bilal Lashari, Ammara Hikmat - you have indeed made something spectacular!''

The Legend of Maula Jatt is the most expensive film to come out of Pakistan. This intense and epic hero origin story, with a screenplay by Bilal Lashari and dialogues by Nasir Adeeb, is a hard reboot of the 1979 cult classic Maula Jatt.

The film is directed by Lashari as well, known for his directorial debut, the box office mega-hit Waar, and produced by Ammara Hikmat under the joint venture of Encyclomedia & Lashari films in association with AAA Motion Pictures.

The film, which was initially announced in 2011, has seen many hurdles along the way. Be it the prolonged legal battle or a pandemic.

The Legend of Maula Jatt kept getting delayed for one reason or the other. Now, fans and critics are hopeful that it will finally see the light of the day and will release on October 13 this year, as promised.
