Ajay Devgn, who has been shooting for Amit Sharma’s Maidaan, has wrapped up the third schedule of the film in Kolkata recently.
While shooting, the cast and crew had the opportunity to meet with football legend PK Banerjee, who was an integral part of the team during the Golden era of Football. He shared his knowledge and experiences with the team as it was a huge walk down memory lane for him reliving those glory years.
The team shot across different locales around Kolkata and also on the outskirts, starting early at
4am and finishing in the evening at around 5pm. Ajay Devgn who interacted with the media after the wrap up said, “I am visiting the city after 13 years, and I am hoping to come back soon. The local food and the sweets have really messed with my diet! I have gained weight after coming here.”
Maidaan is based on the Golden years of Indian Football and will see Ajay Devgn essay the role of the legendary coach Syed Abdul Rahim who is also known as the father of Indian football for his achievements in making India a top nation in Football during his lifetime.
