Ajay Devgn’s latest film, Bhuj: The Pride of India won people’s hearts and how! He managed to put up a spectacular show and did 100% justice to the role. His upcoming film Maidaan directed by Amit Sharma is creating stirs already and it is based on the golden era of Indian football when the national team won Gold at the Asian Games in 1951 and 1962. The shooting which began in 2019, had to be put on hold due to the pandemic, but now that the restrictions are lifted, the makers are planning to resume filming soon.

Maidaan will showcase Ajay Devgn playing the role of a football coach named Syed Abdul Rahim, whose efforts paved the way for the Indian football teams victory. Last year, cyclone Tauktae destroyed the set and created a road block. Last year, producer Boney Kapoor even expressed his dismay in an interview and revealed that they will resume shooting once things get better.

A source close to the film’s development revealed that-

It’s a brief 3-day schedule. The shoot will kick off on August 20 and go on till August 22. After this shoot, the makers intend to complete the remaining portions after the monsoon. Then, the shoot will finally wrap up. It goes without saying that all Covid-safety protocols will be followed during the shoot. The prep for this brief schedule is in full swing.

Finally, after a wait that spanned for over two years, the movie is all set to resume shooting again. I am sure the film is going to be super interesting, can’t wait to watch it!
