The film is being directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma of Badhaai Ho! fame. Maidaan, co-produced by Zee Studios, Boney Kapoor, Akash Chawla and Arunava Joy Sengupta, also features south star Priyamani.
Saiwyn Quadros has penned the screenplay, while Ritesh Shah has written the dialogues.
As per Filmfare, Maidaan was supposed to release in December if the film was completed. However, a large chunk of the movie is left to be shot which are major football matches and since mass-shooting can’t resume so soon, the makers of the film decided to push the release date.
