Now this is Interesting! After Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Zero’, now Riteish Deshmukh to play a dwarf in ‘Marjaavaan’.
Director Milap Zaveri’s upcoming film ‘Marjaavaan’ is going to be a complete action-packed romance drama. The film stars the handsome hunk Sidharth Malhotra and the newbie actress Tara Sutaria. ‘Marjaavaan’ also features Riteish Deshmukh. Interestingly, Riteish will be seen playing a villainous character in this action-thriller.
Ritiesh had played a negative character in ‘Ek Villain‘and the film’s dialogue was written by Zaveri. Now you all will be surprised to know that Riteish will be playing a vertically challenged man (dwarf) in ‘Marjaavaan’. Confirming the news about Riteish playing a three-and-half-feet character in ‘Marjaavaan’, Milap told Mumbai Mirror, “I decided to raise the bar by scaling him down in size. Even though he is a dwarf his character is larger than life. “
An eccentric antagonist that is like an iceberg! We are glad @Riteishd

The director went on to share that Deshmukh’s character will be extremely wicked with some great punch lines. The film’s team has done extensive research in VFX. Commenting about the inevitable comparison between Shah Rukh Khan‘s Bauua Singh and Riteish’s character in ‘Marjaavaan’, Milap said that both the characters are extremely difficult since Bauua is a fun-loving person while Riteish will be playing a full-on negative role.
Am thrilled to play this part & be a part of #Marjaanvan —- looking forward 🙏🏽🙏🏽 @nikkhiladvani @monishaadvani @itsBhushanKumar @madhubhojwani @zmilap @TSeries @EmmayEntertain @SidMalhotra @tarasutaria__ @Rakulpreet https://t.co/Isve5IbL7d

Just a few days back Siddharth had shared his first look from ‘Marjaavaan’ as the film went on floors.
By the looks of it, ‘Marjaavaan’ sounds to be very intriguing and interesting. Also, it will be great watching Sidharth and Riteish in a face off once again on the silver screen.
Produced by Nikkhil Advani and Bhushan Kumar, the film is scheduled to release on October 2, 2019.
