The Legend of Maula Jatt OTT Release Date Revealed!

The Legend of Maula Jatt OTT Release Date Revealed!

So, when can we expect The Legend of Maula Jatt to release on OTT platforms? The filmmakers have indicated that they are waiting to release the film theatrically in India first before making it available on OTT. As previously mentioned, Zee Studios was set to release The Legend of Maula Jatt in India, but due to political reasons, this plan did not materialize.

Speculations suggest that India’s general elections are scheduled between April and May 2024, while Pakistan’s elections are planned for October to September 2023. It is believed that after these elections, both governments will have the strength to make challenging decisions and resume mutual export and import, as well as other businesses that are currently banned. Following this development, Zee Studios will be able to release The Legend of Maula Jatt across India without any apprehensions.

The movie is expected to make its theatrical debut in India during the festive seasons of either Eid ul Fitr or Dusshera in 2024.

Which OTT platform is “The Legend of Maula Jatt” releasing on?

Now, the question arises as to which OTT platform will be hosting The Legend of Maula Jatt movie. According to reliable sources, the filmmakers have been approached multiple times by Netflix, but no deal has been reached yet. The reason behind this could possibly be the filmmakers’ preference to release the film theatrically in India before considering an OTT release.

Netflix Vs Zee5
Netflix and Zee5 are engaged in a battle to acquire exclusive digital rights for the film.

Considering the immense success of the movie, which has already raked in a staggering US$4.5 million or PKR 128.4 crore solely from Pakistan, industry analysts predict that the film has the potential to earn at least INR 25-30 crore from its theatrical release in India. Consequently, the alleged offer of US$1 million from Netflix for the film’s digital rights was deemed unattractive.

Both Netflix and Zee5 are prominent OTT platforms that could potentially acquire the digital streaming rights of The Legend of Maula Jatt movie sooner or later. However, Zee5 appears to have the upper hand in securing the rights, especially if the film remains banned in India. After the 40-day theatrical run in India, the movie will be released on the OTT platform.
