Back in 1991, Ajay Devgn made his Bollywood debut with Phool Aur Kaante. Thirty years down the line, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, his upcoming film, marks the actor’s 100th film. While celebs are wishing him the very best and are busy congratulating the star, this is not the only milestone for Ajay.
There is the buzz that the upcoming biopic ‘Maidaan’ will be Ajay’s first multilingual film, which will release in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam.
‘Maidaan’ will show us the journey of Syed Abdul Rahim, the coach and manager of the Indian football team between 1950 to 1963, who guided the team to victory at the Asian Games (1951 and 1962).
A source quoted by a news publication said, “Through Maidaan, director Amit Sharma wants to familiarise the audience with the legendary coach who had heralded the golden years of Indian football. The makers were keen that the story of Syed Abdul Rahim’s immense contribution to Indian football reach as many people as possible. Hence, they decided to also release it in Telugu, Tamil, and Malayalam, thus tapping the South audience.” The source also said that Ajay will dub for the Hindi version, but the South versions will get a recording from dubbing artistes, and the makers may try to rope in popular South actors to lend their voice to Ajay’s character.
Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior will release on January 10 and Maidaan will hit the screens in November next year.
