Ajay Devgn To Resume ‘Maidaan’ Shoot After Director Amit Sharma Tests COVID-19 Negative

Ajay Devgn‘s upcoming film, Maidaan, was supposed to release in November last year, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the dates had to be moved around. Now, finally, with the industry starting up again, the film was also planning on going on floors in January. But, the director, Amit Sharma, testing positive for Coronavirus put the entire shoot on halt. Now, he has tested negative and the shoot is all set to resume again.

Amit had tested positive for the virus earlier this month and quarantined himself at home. Now, as he has tested negative, and feeling better, he is keen to get back to work. The makers are all set to make preparations for the shoot to be back on track.

For the uninitiated, Maidaan is a story that is based on the very acclaimed football coach, Syed Abdul Rahim. This will be the first time that Ajay will be essaying a role of a sports coach and I sure am looking forward to seeing him step into this role.

The film will also star Priyamani opposite him along with Gagjraj Rao, who is playing a pivotal role in it. This sure is one interesting star cast that I can’t wait to witness on screen! The film is being produced by Boney Kapoor and Zee Studios, in association with Freshlime Films and is slated to release this Dussehra 2021, on 15th October.
