Maidaan tells the story of legendary football coach Syed Abdul Rahim. Directed by Amit Ravindranath Sharma, the film is set during the golden age of Indian football (1952-1962).
The cast includes stars southern actor Priyamani as the female lead, as well as Gajraj Rao and Rudranil Ghosh. The film was shot extensively in Kolkata, Lucknow and Mumbai.
Amidst the lockdown, a massive outdoor set built in Mumbai’s Madh Island had to be dismantled. A new set will be erected post-monsoon and the shoot is expected to start again by November.
Ajay Devgn’s upcoming release is Bhuj: The Pride of India. The period war film will premiere directly on Disney+ Hotstar.
