Filmmaker Amit Ravindernath Sharma’s Maidaan, which stars Ajay Devgn in the lead, is based on the golden period of Indian football in the early 1950s and it focuses on the celebrated Indian football coach Syed Abdul Rahim. It became a rare movie to get high acclaim from critics and audience alike. However, this hasn’t proved to be enough as the movie has sunk at the box office by earning only Rs. 28.12 crores in its extended first week.

Let’s have a look at how Maidaan fared in week 1 as compared to other films of 2024. The Ajay Devgn starrer is at number 7 in the list of highest first week earneres. The list is dominated by Hrithik Roshan, Deepika Padukone and Anil Kapoor starrer action-drama Fighter, which made an impressive Rs. 139.50 crores in week 1. This film is followed by Shaitaan, which made Rs. 81.60 in its first week.

Maidaan had clashed with Bade Miyan Chote Miyan and the latter earned much more in its first week by amassing Rs. 46.17 crores. However, despite this, the film has turned out to be a major failure at the ticket window. Films like Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya and Article 370 are also ahead of Maidaan by minting Rs. 41.97 crores and Rs. 38.82 crores respectively in week 1.
