The last movie that we caught of actor Ajay Devgn was De De Pyaar De. The movie starred Tabu and popular South Indian actress Rakul Preet Singh in the lead roles. This time around, we hear that the actor is gearing up for a biopic film based on a footballer. Releasing their first look poster of the movie, the film is set to follow the life of the great footballer called Syed Abdul Rahim and will be called Maidaan.
Known as the father of Indian football, the role of Syed Abdul Rahim will be essayed by Ajay Devgn. Keerthy Suresh is also expected to play a lead role in the movie, while the movie will be directed by Amit Sharma. This will be the first film where Ajay Devgn plays a sixty-year-old through the movie, besides training as a football player.
The actor himself shared the poster on his Twitter handle along with the caption #maidaankicksoff today! The makers are yet to release anything about the film, while it will be hitting the screens next year perhaps in July.
