The much-anticipated trailer for the upcoming movie Maidaan, starring Ajay Devgn, was released today, and it has started making a lot of buzz among the audiences. Set to hit screens this Eid, the film is based on the inspiring true story of Syed Abdul Rahim, the unsung hero who revolutionised Indian football.

Directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma, the trailer for the film gives a glimpse into the life and legacy of Syed Abdul Rahim, a visionary leader who revolutionised the sport in the country. Syed Abdul Rahim, who served as the coach of the Indian national team from 1950 to 1963, is often referred to as the architect of modern Indian football.

Other than Ajay Devgn, Maidaan also features Priyami, Gajraj Rao, and Bengali actor Rudranil Ghosh in key roles. As the film revolves around a tough Indian football coach, the trailer reminds of another masterpiece by Bollywood, ‘Chak De! India’, in which Shah Rukh Khan played the role of a hockey coach.

Maidaan is slated to release this Eid in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada, and it will clash with Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, starring Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff. However, the trailer for the movie has received a lot of appreciation from the audience, doubling the excitement among cinemagoers.
