Maidaan Box Office Collection Day 3: Ajay Devgn’s latest movie, Maidaan, witnessed an 83.3% jump on Saturday and collected 5.5 crore on the third day.

On Day 0 (a day before the release date), the movie had a paid preview and earned 2.6 crore. It was not an impressive number for a big Bollywood star like Ajay Devgn, especially because it was Eid. As per KoiMoi, it was even lower than HanuMan‘s Telugu version. Teja Sajja’s movie earned nearly 4.5 crore through the paid preview.

Maidaan is based on the life of Team India Coach Syed Abdul Rahim, the architect of modern Indian football who coached between 1952 and 1962. It is directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma, known for Tevar, Badhaai Ho and Lust Stories 2.

The movie also features a number of youngsters like Chaitanya Sharma (as PK Banerjee), Amartya Ray (as Chuni Goswami) and Sushant Waydande (as Tulsidas Balaram).
