Backed by Boney Kapoor, ‘Maidan’ is based on the real-life story of Syed Abdul Rahim, played by Ajay Devgn, who worked as the coach and manager of the Indian football team since 1950. As per a news portal, ‘Maidan’ will now hit the screens on May 12, 2023. It will clash with Divya Khosla Kumar’s ‘Yaariyan 2’ at the box office.
Currently, Ajay Devgn is basking in the success of his last release ‘Drishyam 2’ which has crossed the Rs 230 crore mark at the box office. Speaking about the film’s box office success, Ajay had told, “The film’s box office is gratifying. I am glad that Drishyam 2 is performing better than expected at the ticket window in India and overseas. To be honest, I am as happy for myself as for the people who made this film – (Abhishek Pathak, director) Tabu, Akshaye Khanna, Rajat Kapoor, Ishita Dutta and Mrinal Jadhav, Rockstar DSP (music director) and all other co -artists and technicians; But I am also happy for the film industry as we are passing through a difficult phase. We need films, (being philanthropic), all films to collect money because we need to keep the film economy going. After the pandemic, there have been sporadic hits. This is a matter of concern for us as an industry. After all, it is only the box office that can save the business – be it us – actors, producers, directors, exhibitors, distributors, etc.
