“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,” producer Boney Kapoor said in a statement.

Syed Abdul Rahim was a former coach and manager of the Indian national football team under whose guidance India entered the semi-finals of the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Football Tournament. A teacher by profession, Rahim was a leading figure during the golden age of Indian football. He also led the team that defeated South Korea and won the gold medal at the 1962 Asian Games held in Jakarta.
