It was in July 2018 that Zee Studios announced a film on football coach Syed Abdul Rahim, under whose leadership, the Indian football team won the Asian Games in 1951 and 1962. And now, the film has finally kicked off. Ajay Devgn, who plays Syed Abdul Rahim in Maidaan, earlier took to Twitter to make the big announcement.

A few days back, Ajay Devgn teased his fans with the first poster of his upcoming film ‘Maidaan‘ and it left us even more excited for his first look and trailer. Ajay essays the role of the legendary coach Syed Abdul Rahim. He is said to be the founding father of Indian football. In the teaser poster, we can see footballers rolled in mud and all set for a game. Recently, the ‘Raid’ actor took to his Twitter handle to share the first look posters and it will leave you wanting for more!

The film was earlier scheduled to hit the theatres on November 27, 2020, but has now pushed its release date to December 11, 2020. Produced by Zee Studios, Boney Kapoor, Akash Chawla, and Arunava Joy Sengupta, the film’s screenplay and dialogues are written by Saiwyn Quadros and Ritesh Shah respectively. Maidaan is directed by Amit Sharma of Badhaai Ho (2018) fame. A few days ago, Ajay had unveiled new posters of the upcoming sports-drama film Maidaan. He had then announced that the trailer of Maidaan will be released soon.

Amit Sharma’s Maidaan is based on the “golden years of Indian Football”. Ajay essays the role of the legendary coach Syed Abdul Rahim, who is said to be the founding father of Indian football. He was an Indian football coach and manager of the Indian national team from 1950 until his death in 1963. He is also regarded as the architect of modern Indian football.

Apart from Ajay, the film also features Priyamani, who was last seen in the Manoj Bajpayee-starrer web series The Family Man. Earlier, this year’s National Award-winning actress Keerthy Suresh was roped in for the role of the leading lady, but after a day of shooting, the makers realised that Keerthy looked too young for the role of a mother.
