-By ArdorComm News Network

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has granted clearance to Ajay Devgn’s upcoming movie “Maidaan” without any cuts. Based on a real-life incident and featuring Devgn as a football coach, the film spans over three hours in duration.

No edits were requested by the CBFC for the film directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma. However, the board has mandated a few additions to the movie. Among these additions is a disclaimer stipulating that “Maidaan” is a fictionalized account inspired by true events from the public domain, legendary football players’ perspectives, and writers’ research, with elements of fiction added for dramatic effect.

The disclaimer also clarifies that certain dialogues are for dramatic purposes only and not intended to incite lawlessness. Additionally, the film must include anti-smoking messages during scenes depicting characters smoking, as per CBFC guidelines.

Furthermore, the end credits are required to be presented in both Hindi and English. According to reports, the film’s runtime is 3 hours, 1 minute, and 30 seconds (181.30 minutes).

“Maidaan” narrates the story of Syed Abdul Rahim, portrayed by Devgn, who served as a prominent football coach and manager of the Indian football team, contributing significantly to the advancement of Indian football. The movie also stars Priyamani, Gajraj Rao, and Rudranil Ghosh in pivotal roles.

Despite facing numerous delays since its inception, including disruptions caused by the COVID-19 lockdown and cyclones, “Maidaan” is set to hit theaters on April 10, coinciding with the release of “Bade Miyaan Chhote Miyan.”
