A sports lover himself, Devgan is extremely excited to don the character of Rahim on screen and took to social media to express his thrill about the opportunity to play the character of the great sports personality. The film makers have already released couple of posters of the movie. One of them shows Devgan playing football in mud with a few players. The other one shows him standing upright holding football with his entire squad behind him.
