The teaser commences with an introduction to the Indian football team of the 1950s, which has qualified for the Olympics for the second time. What’s remarkable about them is that they are playing the ‘greatest game’ barefoot. Then we see Ajay Devgn portraying the intense coach Syed Abdul Rahim. The teaser features various training montages, some impressive goals, glimpses of the team’s struggles, and electrifying pep talks. Check out the teaser here:
The movie also features Priyamani and is helmed by Amit Sharma, the director of Badhaai Ho. AR Rahman has composed the music for the film. Due to the Covid pandemic, the movie has experienced several delays. In an interview with HT last year, Priyamani discussed the postponement, stating, “We completed the shooting some time back, and the entire film is ready, but it had to be rescheduled. The filmmakers encountered a lot of obstacles due to Covid; they couldn’t get the crew and actors to fly down. We adhered to all protocols…and now we’re looking forward to releasing it. It will be a unique film. It’s even a distinct perspective for Amit Sharma, who has directed a film like this and added another feather to his cap.” The film will finally hit theaters on June 23.
Originally scheduled to release on October 15, 2021, Maidaan faced a major controversy when it was set to clash with SS Rajamouli’s RRR. Producer Boney Kapoor did not take the clash lightly, stating to Pinkvilla, “It was unethical for those people to announce on the same day, despite the same actor being the main lead of my film and one of the heroes of their film. I would take this to my grave, and it’s almost like stabbing on the back of the hero.” It’s worth noting that Ajay Devgn, who stars in Maidaan, also has a small role in RRR.
