Ajar Devgn would indeed be a happy man right now as his latest ambitious and production venture, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior has struck gold at the box office and has raked in big numbers.
The actor already has two other big films coming in this year, one of which is Maidaan.
Based on the golden years of Indian football, the film is being directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma of Badhaai Ho! fame. Devgn will portray Syed Abdul Rahim, who served as the coach and manager of the Indian football team from 1950 until his death in 1963.
Actor Keerthy Suresh was roped in to play the role of a mother but she looked apparently 'too young' for the part and has hence now been replaced. None other than Priyamani, who was last seen in Amazon Prime Video's The Family Man has now been roped in to play the same role.
It is also being said that Keerthy shot for the film for a day. After the shoot, the makers and Keerthy both felt that she looked too young as she had lost a lot of weight since being signed on for the film to authentically portray the role of a mother, as has been written in the script. Keerthy and the producers then decided to part ways so as to stay true and authentic to the film's story.
The film is currently scheduled to release on November 27th, 2020.
