For the longest time, the release dates of several films were awaited as due to the COVID 19, most of them have undergone a change. On Saturday, Ajay Devgn took to social media to announce the new release date of Maidaan. The sports drama was earlier scheduled to release on December 11, 2020. However, owing to the COVID 19 crisis and theatre shutdown, the film has now been postponed to Independence Day week in 2021. Ajay’s film will now release on August 13, 2021. Ajay shared the news along with a new poster. 

He wrote, “2021 Independence week. An untold story that will make every Indian proud. 13th August mark the date. #Maidaan2021”. Along with this, Ajay shared a poster of the film in which he can be seen holding a football in his hand while his team can be seen standing in the backdrop. The film stars Ajay as Syed Abdul Rahim, the man behind making football popular in India. He was the coach of the Indian football team from 1950 to 1963 and paved the way for modern-day football in India.

A report had earlier stated that the sets of the film in Dahisar had been dismantled as due to the lockdown, the shoots were stalled.
