Maidaan,” the newest movie starring Ajay Devgn, received a mediocre reception at the box office, failing to make over ₹10 crore in its first two days of release. The sports drama made nearly ₹7 crore on its first day of release, but on its second day, it made just ₹24 lakh, according to the reports.

Maidaan Collection:

On Wednesday, the movie grossed ₹2.6 crore from its limited release. Maidaan grossed ₹4.5 crore nett in India on its first day for all languages. The movie has grossed ₹7.1 crore.

In comparison to Ajay’s previous releases, Maidaan’s first-day total—which includes paid previews—is over 50% lower. While his last month’s spooky movie Shaitaan debuted at a peak of Rs 14.75, his Drishyam 2 earned Rs 15.38 crore on its first day of sales. Even his action film Bholaa, which came out in March of last year, made Rs 11.20 crore at the box office. His 2022 Eid release Runway 34, which made Rs 3 cr, was the only other movie that had a lower opening than Maidaan.


About Maidaan:

The movie is about Syed Abdul Rahim (Devgn), a well-known football coach in India from 1952 until 1962. Rahim’s tenacity, leadership, and vision helped him become a famous figure in Indian sports history. It depicts Rahim and the Indian football team’s trials, sacrifices, and triumphs as they attempt to overcome social hurdles and make their mark on the global arena. That led to India winning two gold medals in the 1951 and 1962 Asian Games, and the India Football Team becoming Asia’s first football team to qualify for the semi-finals of the 1956 Summer Olympics.


Starring Ajay Devgn and directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma, is a moving depiction of Syed Abdul Rahim‘s unrelenting passion to Indian football, which strengthened the country’s image.  Priyamani, Gajraj Rao, and Rudranil Ghosh are the other actors in the cast. Under the auspices of Zee Studios and BayView Project, the movie is produced by Boney Kapoor, Akash Chawla, and Arunava Joy Sengupta.


The ‘Maidaan‘ crew persevered in spite of obstacles, such as the disassembly of the film set because of the COVID-19 shutdown and Cyclone Tauktae’s destruction of it, to guarantee the movie’s theatrical debut on April 10.
