Ajay Devgn has long been regarded as one of Bollywood’s most popular stars. His fame has soared after the blockbuster success of Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and all of his next films are eagerly anticipated. Maidaan is one of his many future flicks that has gotten a lot of buzzes. It chronicles the narrative of the golden era of Indian football in the 1950s, when the national team won gold at the Asian Games in 1951 and 1962, as well as reaching the semi-finals of the 1956 Melbourne Olympics. It is directed by Badhaai Ho (2018) filmmaker Amit Sharma. In this film, Ajay plays the part of Syed Abdul Rahim, a high-profile coach.
Ajay Devgn’s Maidaan To Kick Off From August 20
The project has been out of the spotlight for a while. Filming will restart this week in Mumbai. A source said, “It’s a short three-day schedule. The filming will begin on August 20 and end on August 22. Following this shot, the filmmakers plan to finish the remaining parts after the monsoon. The shoot will then come to an end. All Covid safety measures will be followed during the shoot. The preparation for this short timetable is well underway,” sources said.
Surprisingly, August 19 will commemorate the second anniversary of Maidaan’s debut on the dance floor. The Covid-19 pandemic caused numerous delays and hurdles for the sports film. The team had to create a massive tent stadium three times on Madh Island, which was heartbreaking for producer Boney Kapoor. Due to the first lockout, it was disassembled for the first time in May 2020. In November 2020, the set was reconstructed. In February 2021, the shoot resumed, and four significant football events were filmed there. The shoot was then interrupted again in April 2021 owing to the second lockdown.
Cyclone Tauktae devastated a large portion of the set in May 2021. The amount of the loss was subsequently revealed by Boney Kapoor
