'Maidaan', 'Gangubai Kahthiawadi' and 'Apne 2' finally get release dates

New Delhi: 

A bunch of movies are releasing super soon in theatres and fans are going gaga over it. The list includes Ajay Devgn’s ‘Maidaan’, Alia Bhatt’s ‘Gangubai Kahthiawadi’ and Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol’s ‘Apne 2.’

After facing a lot of hardships, Ajay Devgn’s ‘Maidaan’ is finally releasing. It will arrive in cinemas on June 3, 2022.

On Tuesday, Ajay took to Instagram and announced the release date with his fans. “Maidaan, A story that will resonate with every Indian, a film that I feel very strongly about. Mark the date on your calendar. Releasing worldwide on 3rd June 2022,” he wrote.

Helmed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma and co-produced by Boney Kapoor and Zee Studios, ‘Maidaan’ is touted as a sports drama dedicated to the golden years of Indian football. Ajay will be seen essaying the role of the legendary coach Syed Abdul Rahim, who is widely known as the founding father of Indian football.

In 2020, producer Boney Kapoor had to dismantle the film set due to the lockdown imposed to curb the novel coronavirus pandemic. The makers faced a lot of problems this year as well. In May 2021, the set of ‘Maidaan’ was destroyed by Cyclone Tauktae. Gajraj Rao and Boman Irani are also a part of the film.

Alia Bhatt’s much-awaited film ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ will release in theatres on January 6, 2022.

Helmed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the upcoming project is based on the book ‘Mafia Queens of Mumbai’ written by S Hussain Zaidi, and will showcase the rise of a girl named Gangubai Kothewali, a brothel owner and matriarch from Kathiawad who had no choice but to embrace the ways of destiny and swing it in her favour. Announcing the release date of the film, Bhansali Productions took to Instagram and wrote, “The wait to witness her power, strength & resilience ends. Bringing to you a stem-winding story of #GangubaiKathiawadi on 6th January 2022, in cinemas near you.”

The film also stars Ajay Devgn in a pivotal role.

Veteran actor Dharmendra and his sons Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol will start shooting for ‘Apne 2’ in March next year.

Directed by Anil Sharma, the upcoming film is the sequel to the much-loved family drama ‘Apne’. ‘Apne 2,’ will see three generations of the Deol family working together on screen for the first time as it stars legendary actor Dharmendra Deol, his actor sons Sunny and Bobby Deol, and grand-son Karan Deol.

Speaking more about the shoot, director Anil Sharma said, “The film has now been pushed. We will start shooting by March 2022 and are truly excited for it.” Producer Deepak Mukut shared that they will most probably shoot the film in London.

“The film has to be shot across London. Since things have only now begun to open up the world over, director Anil Sharma and I thought it would be best to push the project by a few months, and shoot when the situation is more conducive. Another factor influencing this decision was Karan’s prep for the movie, he has to be trained in boxing. However, the US-based boxer, who was roped in for his training, has been unable to fly down to India,” Deepak said.

For the unversed, ‘Apne’, which revolves around the importance of family bonds, also starred Kirron Kher, Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Katrina Kaif.
