Maidaan Release Date, OTT, Star Cast, Budget, About Film

The upcoming biopic “Maidaan,” starring Ajay Devgn, is based on the life of a football coach named Syed Abdul Rahim during the “golden age” of Indian football, which was from 1952 to 1962.

Amit Sharma of Badhaai Ho fame directed Maidaan, which is produced by Zee Studios in collaboration with Bayview Projects LLP and began filming on August 19, 2019.

Keerthi Suresh, a National Award winner, was the first option to play the lead opposite Ajay Devgn, but producers decided that she looked too young to play a motherly character in the movie and instead cast another South Indian actress, Priyamani.

Ajay Devgn plays Syed Abdul Rahim, the man who opened the path for Indian football and served as its architect. It is based on Syed Rahim’s actual experiences.
