Directed by Amit Sharma, Maidaan is a biopic based on the life of India’s legendary football coach Syed Abdul Rahim. The film went on floors last year in August and the shooting has been taking place in intervals.
Initially, Keerthy was the first choice but due to her ‘too young’ looks, the makers decided to part ways with her mutually and rope in Priyamani as the female lead.
The film will feature Ajay Devgan and Priya Mani in the lead roles. It will hit theatres on November 27 this year.
