Ajay Devgn, the celebrated Bollywood luminary, recently graced the screens with his portrayal in the sports drama “Maidaan.” Directed by Amit Sharma, the film chronicles the inspiring journey of Indian football coach Syed Abdul Rahim, whose impact revolutionized the sport within the country. Despite earning critical acclaim and positive word-of-mouth, Maidaan struggled to make a mark at the box office, garnering a modest 50 crores nett in its domestic run.

The subdued performance of Maidaan in cinemas can be attributed to shifting audience preferences post-COVID. Now, the biographical masterpiece finds a new avenue for viewership as it premieres on Prime Video, offering Hindi audio accompanied by English subtitles. However, there’s a catch: to enjoy the film, audiences are required to pay a rental fee of Rs. 349, with a rent-free option anticipated to be available after a two-week period.

With its move to the OTT platform, Maidaan is poised to gain momentum and potentially find the recognition it deserves. Alongside Ajay Devgn’s stellar performance, the film features Priyamani as his on-screen wife, with notable contributions from Gajraj Rao and Rudranil Ghosh in pivotal roles. Produced by Boney Kapoor in collaboration with ZEE Studios, this biopic boasts the musical genius of Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman, adding another layer of allure to its cinematic journey.
