Sidharth Malhotra


After the success of Ek Villain in 2014, Sidharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh have collaborated once again on the forthcoming film Marjaavaan. Also starring Tara Sutaria and Rakul Preet Singh in important roles, the hugely anticipated film is in the romantic space but with loads of twists and turns. Ever since the makers dropped the trailer of Marjaavaan a couple of weeks ago, some people have been constantly comparing the film with Ek Villain.

Explaining the difference between Marjaavaan and Ek Villain, Sidharth Malhotra says, “Riteish experimented with a negative character for the first time in Ek Villain and it was my third film. Both of us were playing characters which were slightly out of our comfort zone. Before Ek Villain, I had not played an aggressive character and it was a little grey. In Marjaavaan, we are more black-and-white. The drama is more in Marjaavaan.”

Sidharth, who was last seen in Jabariya Jodi (2019) alongside Parineeti Chopra, goes on to add that Riteish is extremely entertaining in Marjaavaan. “Very few stars get an opportunity to transform physically for their character. I am excited for people to see Ritesh’s avatar and we will be battling it out again.”

Marjaavaan is directed by Milap Zaveri who wrote Ek Villain. Nikkhil Advani and Bhushan Kumar have jointly produced the film under the banners of Emmay Entertainment and T-Series Films respectively. Marjaavaan is slated to buzz into theatres on 15th November, 2019.

After the release of Marjaavaan, Sidharth Malhotra will next be seen in Dharma Productions’ much-awaited patriotic film Shershaah which is a biopic based on the life of Kargil martyr Captain Vikram Batra. The movie, set to release in 2020, also stars Kiara Advani in an important role.
