With Maidaan, Ajay Devgn attempts to Ted Lasso his way into the audience’s cores and minds. However, he approaches sports coaching in a more ‘Kabir Khan’ manner. On Thursday, the first teaser for the upcoming Boney Kapoor production was released, which is quite impressive. The teaser begins with an introduction to the 1950s Indian football team, which qualified for the Olympics for the second time. What distinguishes them is that they are playing the “greatest game” barefoot. Ajay then introduces us to broody coach Syed Abdul Rahim. There is a lot of training footage, some spectacular goals, a glimpse of the team’s attacks, and some electrifying pep talks.
Maidaan was previously scheduled to be released on October 15, 2021. There was a lot of uproar about the film clashing with SS Rajamouli’s RRR, which Boney did not take lightly. “It was unethical for those people to announce on the same day, despite the fact that the same actor was my film’s main lead and one of their heroes.” “I’d take this to my grave, and it’s almost like stabbing the hero in the back,” he said. Ajay also had a brief appearance in RRR.
Priyamani also appears in the film directed by Amit Sharma of Badhaai Ho. AR Rahman composed the soundtrack. Because of Covid, the film has been significantly delayed. Priyamani discussed the delay with HT last year. “We finished filming a while ago; the entire film is finished, but it had to be shifted.” Because of Covid, the producers needed help getting the crew and actors to fly down. We followed all protocols…and are now excited to release it. Even for Amit Sharma, who has directed a film like this and added another feather to his cap,” says the 37-year-old. The film will now be released on June 23.
