As a double bill, the teaser of Ajay Devgn’s upcoming film ‘Maidaan’ will be attached with his action adventure ‘Bholaa’ releasing this week for the audience to experience it on the big screen.
Based on a true story, ‘Maidaan’ is directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma and also stars Priyamani and Gajraj Rao. The film is produced by Zee Studios, Boney Kapoor, Arunava Joy Sengupta and Akash Chawl, with screenplay and dialogues written by Saiwyn Quadras and Ritesh Shah respectively. The music is by A.R. Rahman and the film is all set to release worldwide in theatres on June 23.
In 2020, producer Boney Kapoor had to dismantle the film set due to the lockdown imposed to curb the novel coronavirus pandemic. The makers faced a lot of problems this year as well. In May 2021, the set of 'Maidaan' was destroyed by Cyclone Tauktae.
Meanwhile, 'Bholaa' is an official Hindi remake of the Tamil hit 'Kaithi'. It has been styled as the story of a "one-man army, set in one night, fighting a multitude of enemies in various forms, human and otherwise".
The original film revolved around an ex-convict, who decides to meet his daughter for the first time after being released from prison but gets caught in a face-off between police and the drug mafia. ‘Bholaa’ marks Devgn’s fourth directorial film after 'U, Me aur Hum' in 2008, 'Shivaay' in 2016, and 'Runwav 34' in 2022.
