Talking about the film, Boney told TOI, “I was amazed that not many are aware of someone as significant as Syed Abdul Rahim. He’s an unsung hero whose achievements must be saluted. His team had heroes like Chunni Goswami, P.K. Banerjee, Balaram, Franco and Arun Ghosh.
It takes someone like Ajay Devgn to play Syed Abdul Rahim. With him on board, I can just hope that our film inspires youngsters to play football, and India soon to bring the World Cup home.”
On the professional front, Ajay Devgn will be seen in Total Dhamaal. The film is directed by Indra Kumar and is set to hit the screens on December 7. What do you think of it? Comment below!
