I was offered Maidaan in December, I will shoot since the end of January: Priya Mani

The year 2020 seems full for Priya Mani. The actress, who is filming for a handful of films, including the new Telugu version of Asuran with Venkatesh, has just signed a new film: Maidaan with Ajay Devgn . Interestingly Priyamani replace Keerthy Suresh in the Amit Ravindernath Sharma (from Badhaai ho fame) as a director, which would have marked her debut in Bollywood.nPriya Mani, who was filming in a forest in Kerala, tells us: “Mr. Boney Kapoor approached me for the movie; I received this offer in December. I met director Amit in Boneyji's office. He told me the essence of the story and gave me a summary about my role. The way Amit narrated the character attracted me and I just couldn't say no. I will start photographing my portions by the end of January.

Maidaan will trace the golden years of Indian football and has Ajay Devgn playing football coach Syed Abdul Rahim. The actress will be playing Ajay’s wife in the film. “It feels so good to play a real-life character on the big screen. I’m looking forward to working with Ajay Devgn sir and Amit, and of course under Boney sir’s production,” she says.

Interestingly, Priyamani is said to be playing Sasikala in Vijay’s Thalaivi, a biopic of actress and former CM of Tamil Nadu, J Jayalalithaa . Pregúntele si tuvo que trabajar in the horario de rodaje de sus otras películas para acomodar esta y ella dice: “No puedo comentar sobre Thalaivi ahora, pero afortunadamente, mi esposo y mi gerente resolvieron las fechas para asegurar un rodaje sin problemas para toda la tripulación del remake de Maidaan y Asuran para que las fechas no choquen .
