Finally, the trailer for Maidaan is out, and it's yet another underdog story that's unheard and thus brought to celluloid. The highly anticipated film tells the true story of an unknown hero, Syed Abdul Rahim, who brought pride to India through football. Ajay Devgn plays a coach who creates history and records for India, achieving feats unmatched even 60 years later in the world's most played sport, football.

Ajay Devgn leads a stirring tale

The trailer shows the actor in the leading role, bringing together a team comprising players from different parts of the country. In the process, he asks for a decade to make India recognised as a nation, which can also make for an amazing football team. The trailer also gives a glimpse into his family life, with Priyamani playing his onscreen wife. Gajraj Rao, on the other hand, is the antagonist in the story, bringing about challenges to Ajay's dream of a football team recognised worldwide.
