Maidaan is significant as a tribute to Syed Abdul Rahim, a legendary football coach who led India to success from 1950 to 1963. The film's captivating story, written by Saiwyn Quadras and Ritesh Shah, showcases Rahim's unwavering spirit and his transformative impact on Indian football.


When Priyamani took over from Keerthy Suresh

In 2019, it was rumoured that Keerthy Suresh would star opposite Ajay Devgn in Maidaan. However, she later decided not to take on the role. Open Magazine claimed that the decision was made mutually between Suresh and producer Boney Kapoor, with concerns that she seemed too young for the part. Suresh's team responded that they were working on her schedule, suggesting her departure may have been due to scheduling conflicts. Later, Priyamani Raj was cast as Devgn's wife in the film.
