Recover bitcoin private key in a password protected zip file

Ask for a friend. He bought 1.5 BTC back in 2010 and put it in a wallet with BIP38 encrypted private key and totally forgot about this until the price rose to 20K in 2017, he still has the paper wallet but couldn’t remember any more the password to decrypt the private key. When created this wallet he barely understand how bitcoin works and just created a paper wallet following a tutorial he found on internet. The password is fairly long he vaguely remember.

Fast forward to 2020, he found in the old hard disk a password protected zip file name mybitcoinkey.zip which contains a .txt file. New hope arise but he wonder anyone can do a service to hack the file? Of course he is willing to pay part of the wallet to the guy.
