As Ajay Devgn celebrated his 100th film birthday in a special way, makers of Maidaan finalized the release date of the upcoming sports film.

Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh confirmed that Maidaan will now release on 27 November 2020.

Ajay wrapped up shooting of the second schedule of the film in Mumbai in October and is expected to change the base to Kolkata for the next schedule, reported news agency ANI.

The video shows Ajay donning many hats, that he has over a career spanning two decades, from an action police hero to a lover and revolutionary, the short video weaves a connection between all the roles and the emotions that the actor has portrayed on screen.

Kajol took to her official Instagram handle to share the 100 images poster and video clip, alongside which she wrote, “30 yrs & 100 films old. An occasion that definitely calls for a moment. From Phool Aur Kante to Zakhm to Golmaal to Shivaay and now finally Tanhaji! Through all the hard won Fridays I’ve seen you go through. All characters lead back to you.
