In an interview with Mid-Day, Priyamani shared some details about her character, Saira, in Amit Sharma's Maidaan. The actress said, "Saira is his (Syed's) emotional support and pillar of strength. She holds the fort when Rahim saab is not at home or busy with his meetings and matches."


She added that Syed and Saira share a cute relationship in the film. The actress has collaborated with Ajay Devgn for the first time on a movie. Their film Maidaan will clash with Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff's Bade Miyan Chote Miyan at the box office. Both films will be released in cinemas on Eid 2024.

In the same conversation, Priyamani spoke about the previous release, Article 370. The actress expressed gratitude to producer Aditya Dhar and filmmaker Aditya Suhas Jambhale for building her character well. She was seen as a senior officer in the PM's office, Rajeshwari Swaminathan

"My role didn’t need so much importance, but they invested a lot of time in it. What also resonated with me is that while the storm is happening on the field, Rajeshwari is calm and strong," she said. Apart from the aforementioned Hindi projects, the South actress has done The Family Man, Jawan, and Chennai Express as her OTT and Bollywood projects.
