Maidaan Trailer around Christmas
Producer Boney Kapoor shares, “Maidaan is confirmed for a February 17, 2023 release in the cinema halls. In-fact, as we speak, a team is working on the theatrical trailer of the film. We plan to unveil the first trailer of Maidaan around the Christmas period. AR Rahman has already delivered the music score of the film and is at present working on the background score. Our post-production work is also going on in full swing and 60 percent of the work on the post is already finished.” The filmmaker smiles and informs that the first three months of 2023 are jam-packed for him.
“I start my year with the release of the very special, Thunivu on Pongal. It’s my third collaboration with Mr. Ajith Kumar and I am excited to present it to our audience. That will be followed by the release of Maidaan on February 17. And on March 8, I make my acting debut with Luv Ranjan’s film. So it’s a packed first quarter for me,” he adds. The movie is produced by Boney Kapoor in association with Zee Studios.
