Ajay Devgn-Maidaan

Ajay Devgn essays legendary football coach Syed Abdul Rahim in Amit Ravindernath Sharma’s Maidaan. The actor’s first-look posters were unveiled today.

In one, Ajay looks battle-ready as he addresses his team in the pouring rain. The other poster paints him in a lighter hue, attired in formals, and sporting a thick moustache. He’s holding an umbrella and briefcase as he kicks a football out of his way. 

Directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma of Badhai Ho fame, Maidaan has been shot extensively in Kolkata, Lucknow, and Mumbai for over 50 days. The filming will be completed by April. 

The historical sports drama is based on the golden era of Indian football (1952–1962). It also stars National Award-winning actor Priyamani along with Gajraj Rao and Bengali actor Rudranil Ghosh.

Maidaan is produced by Zee Studios, Boney Kapoor, Akash Chawla, and Arunava Joy Sengupta. The screenplay and dialogues are written by Saiwyn Quadras and Ritesh Shah, respectively. 

The film is set for release on November 27, in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam.
