The film ‘Maidaan,’ starring Ajay Devgn, has been given a ‘U’ certificate by the censor board without any cuts. The movie has a runtime of 3 hours and 2 minutes. It is set to release on Eid in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada languages.

‘Maidaan’ is a biopic of Syed Abdul Rahim.

Ajay stars in this film, a sports drama based on the life of Syed Abdul Rahim, who was the coach and manager of the Indian national football team from 1950 to 1963. In the movie, Ajay will be seen in the role of Rahim. Priyamani plays his wife’s role. Besides them, Gajraj Rao, Slochita, and Rudranil Ghosh will also be seen in lead roles.

The film had been stuck for 5 years.

The announcement for this film was made in 2018. Since then, its release has been postponed nearly 5 times. Initially, the set for this film was constructed in Dahisar, where many sets including Olympic ground and running track were built over 9 acres. Shooting was pending for 30 to 35 days on this set. However, due to the lockdown and pandemic, shooting for the remaining parts couldn’t be completed for a long time.

The cost of building this set was 70 million rupees. The cyclone caused significant damage to the film’s set as well. This film has been directed by ‘Bhoothnath’ fame director Amit Sharma. Its producer is Boney Kapoor.

It is hoped that this film will inspire youth: Boney

Speaking about the film, producer Boney Kapoor said, “I was surprised that many people are not aware of Syed Abdul Rahim’s achievements. He is an unsung hero who deserves recognition.”

In his team were chosen heroes like Chuni Goswami, PK Banerjee, Balaram, and Arun Ghosh. We hope that this film will inspire youth to play football.

Scheduled to release on April 10th, the Eid, ‘Maidaan’ will clash with Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff starrer ‘Bade Miyan Chote Miyan’. The trailer for this film has already been released.
