Sidharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh: Marjaavaan’s First Look Unveiled!
Sidharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh-starrer Marjaavaan’s first look is out. The film will hit the screens on 22nd November 2019.
Sidharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh were pitted against each other in the revenge drama Ek Villain in 2014. Now the two are back in a similar face-off, with Riteish once again playing the villain. However, as the first look of the film Marjaavaan has revealed, Riteish is in a completely new avatar, playing a dwarf, similar to Shah Rukh Khan’s character in Zero. T-Series shared several posters of the film with the first looks of the actors. One poster shows a blood-soaked Sidharth, walking forward with a gun in his hand, with a figurine of Ravan and his ten heads in the background. The tag-line for the poster is, “Ishq Mein Maaroonga Bhi, Maroonga Bhi.”
The second poster shows Riteish Deshmukh as a midget, also walking forward with a gun. The tagline reads, “Kamineypan Ki Height Teen Foot.” The third poster also shows Riteish in a similar avatar, walking past dead bodies and staring furiously at Sidharth, with the tagline, “Main Maaroonga Marr Jayega, Dubara Janam Lene Se Darr Jayega.”

According to some reports, Riteish was not keen on playing another, similar negative character so the makers decided to give it a twist by making him a midget, Vishnu, with a larger-than-life personality and a wicked sense of humour. The character has a reference to the fifth avatar of Lord Vishnu, Vamana. A midget gentleman was present on the film’s sets to help Riteish with the mannerisms and physical aspects of the character. The film also stars Tara Sutaria, who made her debut with Student of the Year 2. This will be her second outing. The action drama film has been directed by Milap Zaveri and produced by Bhushan Kumar and Nikhil Advani. It will hit the screens on 22nd November 2019.
