After wrapping up the final schedule of his romcom, Jabariya Jodi, with Parineeti Chopra in Lucknow, Sidharth Malhotra has switched to the action mode with Nikkhil Advani and Bhushan Kumar’s Marjaavaan in Mumbai. The team is shooting with the actor and a dozen of goons but what makes it different is that there’s also fire and rain. The late night set up just adds to the thrill.
“The stunt team wanted to shoot with a body double because Sid’s back and shoulder would be on fire but he was adamant on doing the scene himself to make it look authentic and stay true to his character. There is a lot of maar dhaad in the film and he has pulled it off himself,” a source informed.
The marathon schedule will continue till March-end with Riteish Deshmukh, who plays a vertically challenged character, joining the team next week. “The multiple confrontation sequences between good and evil is where the entire fun unwinds,” the source concluded.
