Ajay Devgn is one of the busiest actors in the Hindi film industry with several interesting projects.
The ‘Shivaay’ actor’s upcoming biographical sports drama ‘Maidaan’ is based on the life of Syed Abdul Rahim.
Earlier in June, the makers of ‘Maidaan’ dismantled the huge football set despite having 30 days shoot left; all credits go to coronavirus induced lockdown and the monsoon in Mumbai.
However, as per TOI, Zee Studios and Boney Kapoor, who are jointly producing the movie, have decided to be back on track. Yes, you heard it right! ‘Maidaan’ will go on floors in the third week of January 2021.
According to the latest reports, the set will be rebuilt on a 16-acre land in the outskirts of Mumbai. The renovation work will begin in the second week of December. However, this whole thing requires some unavoidable extra costs.
This movie which also features Priyamani, Gajraj Rao, Boman Irani, Johnny Lever, and Rudranil Ghosh, is being directed by the ‘Badhai Ho’ director Amit Ravindernath Sharma.
Earlier, this sports drama was scheduled to release on 11th December, 2020. However, because of the ongoing pandemic, the film will now release on 13th August, 2021.
There have been rumors about ‘Maidaan’ releasing on an OTT platform. Later, producer Boney Kapoor clarified that they will have a theatrical release.
