Riteish's never-seen-before look in Marjaavaan

By Bombay Talkies 11 07, 2019 | 02:01 PM
Riteish Deshmukh portrays a vertically-challenged antagonist, named Vishnu, in Marjaavaan.

Speaking about it, director Milap Zaveri says, "Riteish's villainous role had to be better than the last time. I decided to raise the bar by scaling him down in size. Even though he is a dwarf, his character is larger than life. To sum up, it is 'teen foot ki kad aur che foot ka kaminapan'. The part is extremely wicked with dark humor, great punch lines and some crazy face-off scenes with Sid."Riteish, who will be portraying a vertically-challenged antagonist, named Vishnu in Zaveri's film, is grabbing eyeballs with his kohl-lined eyes and a Trishul-shaped tikka on his forehead. Marjaavaan, which was earlier scheduled to hit the screens on November 22, will now be released on November 8. Apart from Sidharth and Riteish, the film also stars Tara Sutaria in a key role. Riteish shares, "Vishnu is one of the most exciting characters that I have been offered to date. Despite being vertically challenged, he is larger than life. He has a certain attitude, is ruthless and Kamina. At the same time, he has an emotional bond with his father and has insecurities with Raghu (Sidharth's character). When this was offered to me by Milap, I instantly jumped on it. I liked Vishnu because it is an extremely layered character - a negative vertically challenged. After Ek Villain, this is one of the most exciting characters that I was offered."
