Two days after the much-appreciated teaser poster of Maidaan, the makers released two posters of Ajay Devgn which have left us stunned. The actor’s first-look posters were unveiled on Thursday. In one, Ajay looks battle-ready as he addresses his team in the pouring rain.
Ajay with the first poster wrote, “Yeh kahaani hai Indian football ke Golden phase ki aur uske sabse badey aur successful coach ki. #Maidaan.” With the second poster the actor wrote, “Badlav lane ke liye ek akela bhi kafi hota hai”. Donning a simple look, the actor plays a football coach in the film and the posters get the period look perfectly. Inspired from an incredible true story, Maidaan pays tribute to the golden era of Indian football.
