Ever since Marjaavaan, starring Riteish Deshmukh, Sidharth Malhotra was first announced, fans were eager to find out and see more. The movie, directed by Milap Zaveri, also stars Tara Sutaria and Rakul Preet Singh.
Talking about the film the director says, “It is a massy action film ,angry, powerful and emotional along the lines of those made by Mukul Anand, Subhash Ghai, and Rajkumar Santoshi. Marjaavaan is a love story with lots of action, dialogue baazi and some beautiful tender moments.”
If that was not enough to get fans excited there was even more scoop to come! There is a lot of excitement around this film for the unique casting because Riteish and Sidharth were last seen together in the blockbuster film Ek Villain (2013), and fans cannot wait to see them together again.
In Marjaavaan, Sidharth’s character begins as a romantic hero but then has to seek revenge after a traumatic event. The actor is very excited about playing this role. At the trailer launch he said, “Every actor thinks before signing a film on what he likes and what he wants from it. This film is an ode to all the heroes I have seen in Hindi movies and got inspired by their entry, the shot, the walk and the action.“ Adding he was blown away by the narration about his part from Zaveri, “When I heard his narration, his dialogues, that was the first thing which got me excited, that I should do this. I got inspired to become a hero, watching big action heroes saying dialogues. This is the first time in my career that I’m playing a hero and be presented like one, all thanks to Milap and the whole team.”
As for Riteish, his character is a villain, who has a dark sense of humor. But that is not all, he is a midget in the film. Speaking about Riteish’s character being vertically challenged, the director says, “Years ago, Subhash Ghai started a film called Devaa with Amit ji (Amitabh Bachchan) as the hero, and Mr. Lilliput as the villain. The project didn’t materialize but that detail stayed with me. The greatest antithesis is making a larger-than-life guy short in stature.” Adding, “I just knew I needed someone like him [Riteish] because of the wickedness, the humour, the performance and that’s why I approached him”
On his part. Riteish says, “As an actor when someone has approached me with a role, my job is only to see whether I’ll be able to pull it off and if the directors and the producers have the confidence whether I’ll be able to do justice to what’s offered to me. As an actor, I’m ready to play anything, be it a vertically challenged person, old person, young or woman also.”
