His stint as a coach for the team made the country win a gold medal in Asian Games 1962 in Jakarta. This movie is directed by Amit Sharma and produced by Zee Studios in collaboration with Bayview Projects LLP. The screenplay and dialogues are written by Saiwyn Quadras and Ritesh Shah respectively.

The actor, announced that Movie, which was earlier scheduled to open in theatres on August 13, 2021, will now be releasing on Dussehra 2021, i.e., October 15. In his post, Ajay Devgn also shared a new poster from the film, Ajay Devgn wrote: “Maidaan now releases worldwide in theatres on Dussehra 2021. Shoot commences January 2021.” He wrote, “#maidaankicksoff today!”

Directed by Amit Sharma and co-produced by Boney Kapoor and Zee Studios, Maidaan is inspired by the Indian national football team coach and manager Syed Abdul Rahim, who is regarded as the architect of Indian football and who died in 1963. Amit Ravindernath Sharma’s “Maidaan” is based on the “golden years of Indian Football”. 

Movie marks the return of director Amit Sharma after his 2018 multiplex hit “Badhai Ho”. The film also features National award-winning actress Priyamani, Gajraj Rao who created magic in “Badhai Ho” and Bengali actor Rudranil Ghosh.

When the shooting of Maidaan halted ,owing to lockdown, the cast and crew had arrived at a very important part of the narrative – the football matches. A ground had been readied in Madh Island for the shoot.  Syed Abdul Rahim is considered as one of the most successful coaches India ever had, under whose command, we could bring gold medal.

It was rumoured that the shoot might be moved to another location, on the outskirts of Mumbai. However, Amit Ravindernath Sharma, the director of the film, told BT, “We are not leaving Mumbai.” He further added, “Even as we speak, work has begun in full swing on the grounds in Madh Island; it’s the same location where we were going to shoot in March. There was a lot of wild grass that had grown on the ground. All of that and more is being looked into so that we’re on schedule in January.”

Elaborating on the preparation of  his central characters to go Amit said, “Ajay sir is extremely excited and ready to get back on set. With the pandemic, everything had to be put on hold. The actors, who were playing the sportsmen, were doing their regular physical training in their individual capacity.

However, as the lockdown eased in the country, they started prepping for their parts. For the last month or so, they have been undergoing formal training with a coach and are gearing up for the sports portions of the film. While doing all of this, we are making sure that safety and precautionary measures are in place for all the crew members.”
