Milte hai Maidaan mein!

Ajay Devgn’s sport drama that brings into the light the the golden years of Indian football, is one of the highly anticipated films. Earlier, it was supposed to be released in November 2020 but has now been pushed to 13th August, 2021. Ajay Devgn will be seen as the legendary football coach Syed Abdul Rahim. The movie will feature his life as the coach and the manager from 1950-1963. It was under his guidance that the Indian football team won gold at the 1962 Asian Games and he also led the team to the semi-finals of the 1956 Melbourne Olympics.

While speaking with PTI, Devgn said, “Working on Maidaan has been very moving and emotional journey for him. It is a fabulous story, director Amit Sharma has done a great job. Times have changed, storytelling has changed. There are no deliberate commercial elements added to a film today, be it a song or the romantic angle. Maidaan has been very moving and emotional journey for me,” the actor said.

Taking to Instagram, the actor also uploaded the first look of the film and all we can say is that it one looks epic! The film also stars Priyamani, Gajraj Rao and Rudranil Ghosh.

 

 

Maidaan is produced by Zee Studios, Boney Kapoor, Akash Chawla, and Arunava Joy Sengupta. With Maidaan, the film marks its first collaboration between Ajay Devgn and Badhaai Ho director Amit Sharma.

Sidharth Malhotra’s love for the south!

Ever since Marjawaan, Sidharth Malhotra has been the talk of the town for all the positive reasons. Also for making appearances with his rumored girlfriend Kiara Advani. 😉 Despite some unique elements like a mute lead actress and a dwarf-sized villain, the film received mixed reviews from the critics as well as the audience. Post-Marjawan, the actor now has another interesting project coming up for him and that is none other than a Telugu film remake. 

 

Just like Marjaawan, Sidharth Malhotra is doing the rounds for a new action project on the block. This movie will be a remake of a Telugu film which is produced by Dil Raju who FYI is also producing Shahid Kapoor’s next Jersey. As per the sources, Sidharth Malhotra has already signed the untitled project as the lead. The makers, in fact, are already in the script development process of the film.

Meanwhile, Bollywood has perfected the formula of popularizing the cult south movies in the industry. Not to forget, the much-talked about Kabir Singh which was also a remake of 2017’s Telugu film Arjun Reddy. Now, we cannot keep calm to witness another blockbuster in the making. 

 

Meanwhile, the actor will also star in an upcoming biopic Shershah based on the life of a Kargil war martyr Vikram Batra. He will be seen alongside Kiara Advani, Paresh Rawal, and Jaaved Jaffery. This one seems like a promising one too, right?
