Ajay Devgn starrer Maidaan movie is an upcoming biopic based on the life of football coach Syed Abdul Rahim, set in the Golden Age era from 1952–62.

National Award winner Keerthi Suresh was initially the first choice to play the lead female role alongside Ajay Devgn, but the producers felt she looked too young to portray a mother’s role in the film. Another South Indian actress, Priyamani, played this role.

Ajay Devgn portrays the role of Abdul Rahim, the architect of Indian football who paved the way for Indian football. This is based on the real-life experiences of Syed Rahim.

Abdul Rahim also coached the Hyderabad City Police from 1943–63, and later in 1951, India won the gold medal in the Asian Games. In 1962, at the Jakarta Asian Games, he achieved his last and final success, where India defeated South Korea to win the gold medal.
